Isberg collection digitized

The AHC has completed a grant project to digitize photographs, glass plate negatives, glass lantern slides, and stereo cards from the Isberg Family papers, a collection of a Laramie family with material dating from 1884 to 1930.

The collection in its entirety is available online.

The Isberg Family collection contains photographic material, primarily taken by William H. Isberg in Laramie and Albany County. The Laramie photographs document the town as it appeared in the 1890s to about 1918. Included are images of President Theodore Roosevelt’s 1903 visit to Laramie. Other photographs show recreational activities in the country outside Laramie. Included are rock climbing, hunting, fishing, picnicking, and visiting at nearby ranches.

The digitization and free and open access to these materials online is made possible by a grant from the Wyoming SHRAB through the NHPRC, a body of the National Archives.
