Scope and Content Note

Many of the photographs in Garman's collection were used as instructional tools for the teaching of photography at Oregon State. Kidder Hall and the Lady of the Fountain received special attention among earlier photographs, and the construction of Weniger Hall was extensively covered among later photographs. The vacation sets include many photographs of Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park.

This collection includes a variety of forms, but consists predominantly of black and white prints. Some items were produced on motion picture positive film. Negatives are in many forms; glass, nitrate, and on standard negative film; they vary in size from 35mm to 8x10. Prints come in many forms; sulphide tone, contact colortone, lithoprint, but are predominantly black and white. Many prints are oversized, mainly 11x14 and 14x17. The collection also includes lantern slides and two sizes (3 1/4 x4 and 5x7) of autochromes.
