This is an expanding artificial collection which began life as a photographic subseries of the Tamiment LibraryĚ̂s vertical file collection, holding images separated from the LibraryĚ̂s core archival and manuscript collections, and from other sources. With the organization and development of the LibraryĚ̂s photograph collections, it was renamed the Tamiment Library / Robert F. Wagner Labor Archives General Photograph Collection, and was assigned the collection number NP1, the first of the LibraryA︡s more than 100 photographic collections. Apart from the material transferred from the LibraryA︡s vertical files, the General Photograph Collection holds photographic images that are not part of or do not fit into the scope of the LibraryĚ̂s other photographic collections. Images continue to be added to the collection from various sources, including the LibraryĚ̂s archival and manuscript collections.
