Hi Bob,

Thank you for sharing this tome of information.  All the perspectives and many that a conservator of late 19th C-mid 20th C can use - and that is just the titles!  So glad to see other areas covered.

Appreciate your posts and sharing,

Kim

I met Newhall on a number of occasions in Rochester at RIT and at the Visual Studies Workshop so I was a dyed in the wool fan but it is nice to have other perspectives.  E.g., Newhall was not very receptive to alt photo printing after the advent of silver gelatin.  He and Minor White used to say, "Sure, that's nice.  But is it photography?"
