New Collection Online: John N. Choate Glass Plate Negatives

Date of Post

The Dickinson College Archives and Special Collections recently acquired a collection of 39 glass plate negatives from the studio of John Nicholas Choate, the famed photographer who frequently captured images of Carlisle Indian School students and activities. The collection includes individual and group portraits, most of which were not commercially sold. As a result, most of these images are rare and have never been publicly accessible before. Many of the people in these pictures have identifying captions, or have been identified by cross-referencing other photographs.

 All of the images are now digitized and available through our website. You can view the images here, or read through the collection finding aid here. If you have any new information about the images, please share through the "Submit corrections" button on the bottom of each image post.
