The Brooklyn Museum's lantern slide collection was started by the museum's curator of fine arts, William Henry Goodyear, in the late nineteenth century. With the assistance of photographers Joseph Hawkes and John McKecknie, Goodyear reproduced images of archaeological and architectural sites in Europe and images of the Paris Exposition, which Hawkes often hand-colored for more realistic effect. The lantern slide collection developed, as well, through the efforts of curator of ethnology Stewart Culin and his successor, Herbert Spinden, who created or purchased images of objects and sites. Historic images of Museum galleries, New York City scenes, and buildings also became part of the collection. In 1921, a significant addition of one hundred eighteen boxes of slides, originally the property of Franklin Hooper, Director of the Brooklyn Institute of Arts and Sciences, were consigned to the Museum, Children's Museum, and Botanic Garden.
