Dave Friedman collection, 1946-2009 (bulk 1960-1995)

The Dave Friedman collection is made up of two subgroups: the Photographs subgroup and the Research Files, Programs and Other Materials subgroup. The Photographs subgroup, 1948-1999, is comprised of four series: the Digital Images series, the Negatives and Contact Sheets series, the Prints series, and the Slides series. The Photographs subgroup encompasses an array of races, racecars, drivers and teams and includes images of races at tracks across the United States and around the world. The subgroup includes photographic prints, negatives, digital files, contact sheets and slides. Race name, track, race date and driver information are identified on the back of most prints. Images with no identifying data are filed in each series or subseries as "Unidentified." The Research Files, Programs and Other Materials subgroup, 1946-2009, consists of four series: the Research Files series, 1946-1993; the Audio Cassettes series; the Press Kits and Ephemera series, 1959-2007; and the Programs and Printed Material series, 1949-2009. The material in these series documents in detail races such as the Indianapolis 500, 24 Hours of Daytona, 12 Hours of Sebring, 24 Hours of Le Mans, as well as NASCAR, Can-Am, Trans-Am and Formula 1 races across the United States and around the world.
