George D. McDowell Philadelphia Evening Bulletin Photograph Collection: Philadelphia Subjects, Major Headings

Collection ID: 
SCRC 170
Collecting Area: 
Subjects: 

This collection contains a mixture of local newspaper, wire service, and other source photography for approximately 40,000 individual names and subjects on the world, national and local scene. Materials in collection were primarily drawn from the general subject files of the Philadelphia Evening Bulletin Library (1929-1982). Other holdings come from the Philadelphia Inquirer (mostly 1939-1960) and Daily News (1958-1962). Although there are some wire service photographs in the collection, the majority of the Philadelphia photographs represent original newspaper photography.

Portions of this collection are housed off-site at the Library Depository, and require up to two business days to retrieve. Contact the Special Collections Research Center in advance of your visit, so that materials may be relocated to the reading room for research.  For information on how to request these materials, please see "How to Request Newspaper Clippings and Photographs."
