Camilo José Vergara photographs, 1977-2009

5 Linear Feet — 87 Items
Camilo J. Vergara is a documentary photographer, focusing on the evolution of urban spaces. Collection of color prints from Vergara's 2009 National Building Museum exhibit Storefront Churches, with photographs of urban churches, pasters, and murals from cities around the United States. This exhibit was part of a larger collection featured in Vergara's book, How the Other Half Worships.

Collection consists of 85 color prints, ranging in size from 11x14 inches to 20x24 inches, as well as two 30x30 color transparencies. These images were all part of the National Building Museum's 2009 Vergara exhibit, "Storefront Churches," and many are also featured in his recent book, How the Other Half Worships (2005).

Subjects include urban churches in cities throughout the United States, in particular New York City and its neighborhoods (such as Harlem, Brooklyn, and the Bronx), Detroit, Chicago, Los Angeles, Gary, and Camden. Vergara's photographs vary in what part of each church is highlighted: some are simply the church's exterior, offering a glimpse of the neighborhood and condition of the building; other images are taken inside the church, whether it be an abandoned sanctuary or an active praise service. The collection also contains, to a lesser extent, photographs of religious and spiritually-inspired murals and artwork from different urban environments; cemeteries and outdoor worship spaces; and some portraits of different pastors and preachers, including street preachers. Most of the churches represented in the collection are Pentecostal, Baptist, or some other branch of Evangelical Protestant Christianity.

The collection documents the evolution of church structures, such as the series of rephotography of a Chicago building that evolved from the Holy Raiders Revival Church in 1981 to the Mt. Zion Missionary Baptist Church in 2009. Vergara rephotographed the building six times during that period, and each time the building's facade and surroundings had changed significantly. Vergara's photographs also offer one-time glimpses of abandoned and decaying buildings, as well as documentation of reclaimed and re-used urban structures, such as the former Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant that is now a worship center in Newark.

Anne Noggle photographs of Soviet airwomen, 1990-1992

2.0 Linear Feet — 2 boxes — 36 prints — 11x14; 16x20; 20x24 inches
Anne Noggle (1922-2005), aviator, photographer, author, and educator, traveled to Moscow from 1990-1992 to conduct more than seventy interviews and to photograph former Soviet airwomen who served during World War II as pilots, gunners, bombardiers, navigators, and flight crews. The 36 black-and-white portraits in this collection show the women seated and standing, most in a studio setting; they are in civilian clothing and many are wearing their wartime medals and military insignia. The gelatin silver photographs were printed by Noggle and measure 20x24 (8), 16x20 (6), and 11x14 (22) inches. Almost all appear in her book A Dance with Death: Soviet Airwomen in World War II, published in 1994, also held by the library. Acquired as part of the Archive of Documentary Arts at Duke University.

Collection consists of 36 black-and-white photographic portraits taken by photographer Anne Noggle of former Soviet airwomen who served during World War II as combat pilots, gunners, bombardiers, navigators, and flight crews. The women are seated and standing, most in a studio setting; they are dressed in civilian clothing and many are wearing their wartime medals and military insignia. The gelatin silver photographs were printed by Noggle and are sized 20x24 (8), 16x20 (6), and 11x14 (22) inches. Almost all the images appear in her book A Dance with Death: Soviet Airwomen in World War II, published in 1994, and also held by the library.

From the Texas A&M Press website for the book: "The women who tell their stories here began the war mostly as inexperienced girls — many of them teenagers. In support of their homeland, they volunteered to serve as bomber and fighter pilots, navigator-bombardiers, gunners, and support crews. Flying against the Luftwaffe, they saw many of their friends — as well as many of their foes — fall to earth in flames. Their three combat Air Force regiments fought as many as one thousand missions during the war... equally courageous were the women's efforts to show the Red Army that they were entirely adequate to the great role they sought. For even though Stalin had decreed equality for both sexes, the women had to grapple initially with deep distrust from male pilots and Red Army officers, against whom they eventually prevailed."

Jesse Pyrant Andrews is an American photographer based in rural southern Virginia. Collection comprises 274 black-and-white photographs and 46 oral history interviews by photographer Jesse Pyrant Andrews, documenting rural and small-town life in the Piedmont region of Virginia and North Carolina. Major themes center on the landscapes and people of the region; tobacco cultivation; the lives of farmers, war veterans, small business owners, and laid-off workers; local architecture and historic sites; traditional crafts and music; and new patterns of economics and society in rural Virginia. Andrews's Veterans Project has become a larger focus over the years; it now comprises 29 portraits and 27 in-depth audio interviews, chiefly with veterans of the Vietnam and Gulf Wars. Additional projects include materials related to the Carter-Wooding families of southern Virginia; views from an Amtrak train; and street scenes and portraits taken in New York City, California, and Massachusetts.

Collection comprises 274 black-and-white photographs and 46 oral history recordings by Jesse Pyrant Andrews documenting rural and small-town life in the Piedmont plateau of central southern Virginia and northern North Carolina. Most of the images are portraits of local people, along with scenes from homesteads, small towns, farms, and grave sites. Major themes include tobacco cultivation; the lives of farmers, migrant workers, war veterans, small business owners, and laid-off textile workers; regional architecture; historic sites; and traditional activities such as music-making, constructing handmade firearms, and working with leather. Together, the images and interviews speak to significant changes in this rural Piedmont region's cultures and economies as it has transitioned into the 20th and then the 21st centuries.

The Veterans series documents through portraits and in-depth audio interviews the experiences of U.S. military veterans, primarily during the Vietnam and Gulf Wars, but also in World War II. The series includes a Vietnam War veteran's manuscript memoir and a tribute essay to one veteran, written by Andrews. Some of these resources may contain disturbing content.

The Carter-Wooding Project, also comprising photographs and several oral histories, documents two Halifax County, Virginia families, the Carters and the Woodings, and their rural property dating back to an 18th-century Huguenot land grant. This project forms part of the Portraits series in this collection. Interior and exterior shots of a former plantation, "Mountain View," are featured in the series Life At Large.

Photographs from the series 13-Month Crop, documenting tobacco farming, were featured in a solo exhibit of Andrews' work hosted by the Rubenstein Library at Duke University in 2002. Portraits and oral histories in the Burlington Mills series document the experiences of former southern Virginia textile workers. Other images document a trip on an Amtrak train, and street life and people in New York City, California, and Massachusetts.

Most of the photographs are accompanied by captions written by the photographer, commenting on the individuals, their life experiences, and aspects of local culture and society. Captions for the Veterans series include biographies as well as historical details related to several wars in which the U.S. was involved.

A large selection of photographs from the Andrews collection has been digitized and is available on the Duke Digital Collections website.

Nadia Sablin photographs, 2008-2014

1.5 Linear Feet — 39 13x19 photographs in one box.
This collection includes 39 photographic prints comprising the series Aunties, by Nadia Sablin, the 2014 CDS/Honickman First Book Prize in Photography Award Winner. Aunties is a series of photographs detailing the lives of two unmarried sisters living in a Russian village.

Sablin's description: "Aunties is a series of photographs detailing the lives of two unmarried sisters living in a Russian village. Alevtina and Ludmila are in their seventies, but carry on the traditional way of life, chopping wood for heating the house, bringing water from the well, and making their own clothes. Vegetables they harvest in the fall and berries they gather in the summer supplement the meager pensions on which the elderly subsist in Russia. My photographs of them are a meditation on aging, family and a sense of belonging. The house in which the sisters live was built by their father, the rugs woven by their mother. They contribute to the home as well, with new wallpapers, hand-sewn curtains, quilts and lace. Folded handwritten recipes contain seeds for planting, or rolled up balls of stray hair. Their environment is as much a character as they are themselves."

The collection consists of 39 13"x19" color photographs printed on Epson Exhibition Fiber Paper.

Jennifer Stratton photographs, 2014-2015

23 item — 1 box, 1 oversize folder
This collection includes 23 photographic prints comprising the series Where We Live: A North Carolina Portrait. Photographs taken by Jennifer Jacklin Stratton throughout the state of North Carolina in 2014-2015.

Includes prints from Stratton's participation in the Where We Live project, inspired by Alex Harris's 1971-1972 North Carolina work. Collection contains 23 color photographs printed on Hahnemuhle “13 x 19” 320g Fine Art Pearl Photo Rag. The first 12 prints were intended for inclusion in the spring 2016 Where We Live: A Portrait of North Carolina exhibition at the Rubenstein Gallery. North Carolina counties represented include Halifax, Robeson, Sampson, Nash, and Cumberland. Stratton included the following text about her work:

"What we call the beginning is often the end. To make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start. -- T.S. Eliot In making these photographs I immersed myself in Alex Harris' original 1971-72 North Carolina work, and embraced his instinct to roam widely and to engage the people he met with his camera. At first this comprised of a lot of wandering through places I had never been and getting to know people along the way. It also included choosing the unpredictability of working with a 1960s medium format camera lacking a light meter and focusing mechanism – all attempts to sense what has changed in the past forty four years and what still lingers – both in photography and in the landscape. Since 1971, there are many more people, like myself, who now call North Carolina home. Between 2000 and 2010 alone, North Carolina gained almost 1.5 million residents. As I began to photograph, I kept stumbling across the statistic that the state has more factory-farmed hogs (10.1 million) than people (9.5 million). I wondered how has this significant population growth of both livestock and people impacted environmental resources, waste disposal and energy consumption throughout the state? I wanted to explore making photographs of something difficult to see: our biological need to live in a place with access to drinkable water, breathable air, healthy soil, an impulse that ultimately connects us all. In North Carolina there is a strong historical correlation between poverty and environmental degradation. In the late 1970’s midnight dumpers deliberately dripped PCBs in fourteen counties along more than two hundred miles of highway, leading to protests in Warren County that made national news. In 2014, I followed much the same route as this highway by photographing along the proposed path for the planned Atlantic Coast Pipeline project. I found several of the counties on this route have previous histories of environmental injustice. By photographing some of the people who live in these counties under daily environmental threats such as refuse dumping, expanding landfills, industrial animal farms, and coal ash, I sought to make personal and visible the complexities of shifting state-wide developments. Long-time residents continue to endure the emptying of downtowns and homes while bearing witness to the physical degradation of the air, water, and land around them. In this corridor of environmental injustice and socioeconmic disparities, the sustainability of family life for future generations is in question.

There is loss in the landscape, but also change and growth. I do not think it is possible to put into words all that I have gained bonding to place and people through making this work. This was an opportunity to engage with the diverse perspectives that exist within a singular place. As I entered neighborhoods a stranger with my camera, I was welcomed far more than I was turned away. I found my purpose in making these photographs was as Robert Adams writes, 'to try to be coherent about the intuition and hope' I had found."

Folder

Name files maintained by Franklin for select students (usually PhD students) at Brooklyn College and the University of Chicago. Typical files include dissertation abstracts, Franklin's evaluations of their work (not including grades), correspondence and letters of recommendation, and published articles or other clippings. These files often extend far beyond the dates of the students' enrollment in Franklin's departments, reflecting his continuing role as a mentor and colleague to many of his former PhD students. The Student Files subseries includes notable figures such as Genna Rae McNeil, Alfred Moss, and Loren Schweninger, each of whom went on to collaborate with Franklin on some of his later publications.

Strobridge Lithographing Company Advertisements, 1910-1954 and undated

9 Linear Feet — 7166 Items
Lithography company founded in Cincinnati, Ohio, in about 1847. The Strobridge Lithographing Company Advertisements span the years 1910 through 1954, documenting much of the company's printed poster advertising work from that era. All images are black and white. The core of the collection, the Image Files Series, consists of around 1000 8x10 photographs ("A" images) of advertising designs, and a similar number of smaller printed cards (approx. 5x7 to 5x8, "B" images) of outdoor advertisement designs. The images are accompanied by three different Access Files to be used to browse the collection. These files are in the form of image photocopies ( "job tickets" ) and catalog cards. Most images are of poster (billboard or transit card) designs, but there are also some photographs of tabletop display advertising, window cards and other point-of-purchase displays. The collection documents advertising during a time when transportation was changing in America, and the automobile was gaining in popularity. Billboards began to replace smaller posters, accommodating a more mobile public. It was then that Strobridge turned from its emphasis on circus and theater posters (not represented in the collection) to billboard ads for mass-produced products. Many different products are featured, but perhaps the two most prominent and well-represented campaigns are those for Camel cigarettes and Palmolive soaps. The images form a valuable reference collection of advertising designs, relevant for researchers from a variety of disciplines including commercial artwork, advertising history and design, and popular culture. The collection documents outdoor advertising design during the first part of the twentieth century for what were mostly national brands. Numerous examples are from the era of hand-drawn and painted designs, often signed by artists including Norman Rockwell, Howard Scott, and Dr. Seuss (see his designs for the product Flit). Rarely, an artist is listed on the back of the image. Later designs from the 1940s and 1950s include photographic images, often peppered with celebrity likenesses including John Wayne, Maureen O'Hara, and Charlton Heston. Many of the celebrity advertisements promoted tobacco products. Some designs are clearly war-era, such as advertisements depicting a 1943 female factory worker, or one from Schlitz (1942) mentioning war bonds.

The first series, the Access Files, can be used to browse the collection and narrow a search for an individual advertisement before moving on to the Image Files themselves. Items in the Image Files are labeled with an "A" or a "B" indication. The "A" group holds the larger 8x10 photographs and the "B" group contains smaller images (primarily 5x7 and 5x8) printed on cards. There is some duplication between the "A" and "B" groups. The "A" images contain advertisements from the 1910s through the 1950s, and the "B" advertisements were created mainly in the 1920s and 1930s. All point-of-purchase advertising is in the "A" group. There is often indication of the size poster the design was made into (e.g. 24-sheet), a design or perhaps job number (e.g. Camel No. 93), and a title (e.g. "Perfect" for a Camel advertisement with the text "Perfect Taste"). Most designs are presumed to have been created and published by Strobridge, but there are some images stamped "W. J. Rankin Corp." Some images show billboards as they were posted; some of these show the nameplate of the outdoor advertising company that owned the billboard structures.

The name of the collection is seen on folders and sometimes elsewhere as the "Strobridge Lithography Company," but the materials themselves as well as other documentation reveal the name to be "Strobridge Lithographing Company" at the time when most of this collection was created. Almost all advertisements are in English, presumably for posting in the U.S., but a few, such as Spur cigarette advertisements, are in Spanish.

Related collections in the David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library include a number of other outdoor advertising collections, such as the Outdoor Advertising Slide Library, the John Paver Papers, the John Browning Papers, the Duplex Advertising Co. Records, the H.E. Fisk Collection of War Effort Mobilization Campaigns, the Outdoor Advertising Association of America Records, the Outdoor Advertising Poster Design Collection, the Garrett Orr Papers, the R.C. Maxwell Company Records, the Howard Scott Papers, and the John E. Brennan Outdoor Advertising Survey Reports. There are also numerous published items from the era of this collection which provide even more context for the designs.

This series contains three subseries which should assist the user in searching for individual advertisements within the Image Files. The first two Access Files subseries are photocopies (called here "job tickets") of all the images in the Image Files arranged in two different ways. The first group of job tickets is arranged as the images are, in number order. The second subseries is an exact copy of the first, but arranged by advertising topic, described below. Each file, however, does not have exactly the same number of items, and so certain series may be missing some individual numbers. The third subseries is the card file, comprised of cards with brief description and indexed terms from the advertisements. The images contain additional information recorded on the verso side.
