Photographic negatives and slides, 1987-2003, undated
Scope and Contents
This sub-series consists of over 10,000 sets of photographic negatives, as well as slides, produced by the UCAR/NCAR Photographics staff from 1961 to 2000. The negatives and slides document scientific research conducted in laboratories and at field sites; depict research equipment, aircraft, computers, and weather phenomena; portray NCAR staff, visitors, meetings, lectures, and special events; and document administrative matters. The negatives include original images taken by staff photographers and copy negatives produced for NCAR/UCAR staff members. The copy negatives are usually identified as “copies” or “copy negatives” in this inventory. Please note that for the copy negatives, the date listed likely refers to the date the Photographics Laboratory created the copy. The date of the original image was usually not recorded. If an original date was recorded, it is included in the item description. The copy negatives include some images from as early as the 1940s, including images of Walter Orr Roberts at the Climax Observatory. Also included in this sub-series are collection inventory binders, card catalogs and contact sheet binders that aid in locating images in the collection, and subject binders containing contact sheets, slides, and related documentation.
