Grand Army of the Republic Civil War Portraits
University of Washington, Seattle Public Library
After the Civil War, veterans who had fought for the Union formed the Grand Army of the Republic. Around 1915, local members put together an album of photographic portraits collected from members over the previous 25 years or so. The leather-bound book was donated to the Seattle Public Library in 1971. Only 106 portraits remain, and some are unidentified, but they all form a remarkable resource for Seattle history which can now be found in this digital collection.

Ira Clemens Photograph Album, 1923
Pittsburg State University
A collection of photographs, postcards, and notes compiled in 1923 by Ira Clemens. The materials concern mining communities and towns in Crawford and Cherokee Counties in Kansas, and Mindenmines, Missouri. The photographs consist primarily of street scenes, churches, public buildings such as libraries and schools, recreational buildings and parks, and residences of miners. The notes typically define the physical location of the community, indicate the population characteristics, identify the major buildings, disclose bank holdings, and describe other features of the community.

These are just a few of the many outstanding digital collections created by CONTENTdm users.
