How to Search

Basic Search will allow you to search all descriptive elements (title, caption, etc.) in the Archive. Use keywords, phrases, and for more accurate searches, surround your search string in "quotations".

Advanced Search provides additional functionality. But not all fields are searchable yet. We are continually uploading additional data for each photograph. At this moment, the following descriptive elements are a sure thing:

  • Photo Name
  • Photographer/Creator
  • Collection
  • Citation
  • Publisher
  • Description/Caption

Click on Advanced Search to show the advanced search page.
