The bulk of the series contains images of Governors Thomas E. Dewey (1943-1954), Nelson A. Rockefeller (1959-1973), Malcolm Wilson (1973-1974), and Hugh L. Carey (1975-1982). There are also a few images of Governor Averell Harriman (1955-1958), Dewey's Lieutenant Governor Joseph Hanley, and Carey's Lieutenant Governor Mary Ann Krupsak.
