The Doy Leale McCall Rare Book and Manuscript Library houses negatives, slides, and prints, from 8x10 glass plates to the traditional 35mm. While our photographs range in date from about 1880 to today, we do not have coverage for every year of that date range. For example, non-portraiture images begin about 1895, while architectural images do not start until around 1920. The McCall Library's photographic collections also include portraits. The name of the collection may be that of a person, business, organization, institution, location, subject, or donor.

Please note: not listed here are the thousands of images related to the University of South Alabama that we hold.
