Stefan Lorant collection, ca. 1869-1993 (bulk 1920-1992).

The Lorant collection represents significant aspects of Lorant's careers as filmmaker and pictorial history book author; his better known expertise as a picture magazine editor is less thoroughly documented. The core of the collection comprises photographs he collected of German history from the Bismarck era to the Nuremberg Trials (ca. 1871-1946). A smaller portion of the photo holdings consists of stills from Lorant's silent films and personal photos of himself, friends, and family. An extensive correspondence from his American years is primarily concerned with book projects.
