Louis H. Draper Archive Portal
Welcome to the Louis H. Draper Archive Portal. This project represents more than three years of work to catalog, digitize, preserve, and disseminate the extensive Draper archive. To learn more about Draper’s life and the grant project, click on the first block below.
To explore the digitized archive, click on any of the other blocks, which are arranged just like the physical archive. Manuscript items are listed first, then photographic materials, and finally photographic equipment.
