Collection Overview

Collection Description & Creator Information

Scope and Contents

Includes 141 numbered and 28 unnumbered glass lantern slides that are positive and in color. Numbered slides were removed from their original carrying case and sleeves were numbered to indicate their original order. Unnumbered slides were found loose. The numbered slides seem to be arranged in order of display and are apparently Halliburton's show slides. 4 broken slides (housed in Box 51) were encapsulated in archival plexiglass to facilitate handling.


Not arranged according to any arrangement scheme.
