The Marriott C. Morris Photograph Collection is now available online in two ways. Almost 2500 photographic prints, negatives and lantern slides from the Morris Collection are accessible online, the Library Company’s digital collections catalog. From September 2014 through the summer of 2015, Alison Van Denend, the Assistant Project Manager for the Morris Collection, processed and digitized these photographs as part of an effort to preserve, organize, and research the work of amateur Philadelphia photographer Marriott C. Morris. The Library Company’s entire collection of Morris’s work, including new materials generously donated by Morris’s grandchildren David Marriott Morris, Eleanor Rhoads Morris Cox, and William Perot Morris, is now accessible in one searchable database. Each record contains a high quality jpg file as well as information regarding the date, location, and subject of the photograph gleaned from Morris’s meticulous journals.
In addition to the resources available on ImPAC, the Morris Collection can be explored further via the project’s website. The website includes a family tree, copies of Morris’s photographic journals, a link to ImPAC records, and all of Alison Van Denend’s blog posts about the collection, as well as links to other repositories with Morris’s work. Please visit the Morris Collection website to learn more.
