Dental deluge: light at the end of the tunnel

Having now finished processing all the print photographs and all the strip negatives from the large donation of materials from the School of Dentistry Alumni Association, I can say with more certainty that the donation was AWESOME! We have now added to the Historical Image Collection inventory about a hundred new listings, primarily in the categories of Class Pictures, Alumni Meetings, and Portraits, Individual. I haven't gotten to the 35mm slides yet, but I don't expect radically different topics to be depicted there.

I have to retract my somewhat snarky statement about the miscellaneous negatives having been packed miscellaneously: they were, no doubt, and they all lacked any identifying information of any kind, but it didn't cause as much trouble as I anticipated. Only a small handful of negatives were seriously damaged in the packing, and (happily) SODAA often used different types of film in different cameras--so grouping negatives into likely clusters of rolls was easier than it would otherwise have been. Plus, going through the print photos first gave me a sense of what sorts of events and places were likely to have been depicted. (Who knew dentists were such 'ballers?)

Since the OHSU Library web site update moratorium is still in force, I'm including a few snippets of the HIC inventory below, so you'll know sooner rather than later about the bulk of the adds. Stay tuned for further updates on the contents of the publications portion of the donation, and the archival collection of records and like documents.
