I first encountered the photographic portraits in 2000 while leading a project to digitize that central file, which involved dismantling it and returning each photograph to its original collection as a prerequisite for scanning. I can recall my excitement as I saw the trove returning to the Scribner’s collection grow in number, revealing a fascinating mix of subjects.
