Yes, ANOTHER one!

This message is a cut-and-paste from a message that Caroline Arms sent to
the NDL staff.  Caroline works in both the Library's NDL Program and
Information Technology Services division.  She has been shepherding the
NDL/Ameritech Award-winning collections to their new home in American Memory.

Please don't re-post this message to other lists.  An official notice, is,
no doubt on the way, most likely when Caroline returns from her vacation.

American Environmental Photographs, 1891-1936:
Images from the University of Chicago Library

Here's the Scope & Contents note from the home page

This collection consists of approximately 4,500 photographs documenting
natural environments, ecologies, and plant communities in the United
States at the end of the nineteenth and the beginning of the twentieth
century. Produced between 1891 and 1936 by a group of American botanists
generally regarded as one of the most influential in the development of
modern ecological studies, these photographs provide an overview of
important representative natural landscapes across the nation. They
demonstrate the character of a wide range of American topography, its
forestation, aridity, shifting coastal dune complexes, and watercourses.
Comparison of early photographs with later views highlights changes
resulting from natural alterations of the landscape, disturbances from
industry and development, and effective natural resource usage.  The
photographs were taken by Henry Chandler Cowles (1869-1939), George Damon
Fuller (1869-1961), and other Chicago ecologists on field trips across the
North American continent.

Among the natural features these images document are ecological settings
such as dunes, bogs, forests, and deserts; individual plants from the
Ponderosa pine and birch to grasses and mosses; landscape features like
the Grand Canyon, Lake Superior, and the Sierra Nevada; and the
consequences of natural and human changes to the environment ranging from
erosion and floods to irrigation and lumbering. The collection also
includes photographs of University of Chicago botanists as they conducted
field research, led students on summer field classes, and traveled across
the North American continent on tours including the International
Phytogeographic Excursion of 1913.

     For the technically inclined, this collection follows the
interoperability model used for the South Texas Border.  We have
bibliographic descriptions here (indexed using InQuery) but the images
(even the thumbnails) are mounted at the University of Chicago.

    Please have fun.  Notice the indexing of plants by scientific and
common names.  Since the collection includes collections from almost every
state, we provide a clickable map for searching by state -- as well as a
more detailed geographic index that details county and city when known.
