Collection description:

The collection consists of the Southeast Alaska photographs of geologist Arthur F. Buddington. The collection contains: original typed and handwritten lists of captions to the numbered photographs in the collection, written by Arthur Buddington and W. B. Jewell; and 420 black and white prints from three original photograph albums. The photographs document mountains, glaciers, islands, valleys, rivers, creeks and other geological features in the Wrangell, Sitka, Juneau, Ketchikan, Petersburg and Hyder districts. Glaciers photographed include: Nelson, Baird, Sawyer, Dawes, Sumdum, Salmon, Texas, Ferguson, Chickamin, Grand Pacific, Gilbert, Rendu, Carrol, Reid, Casey, Hidden, Munro, Le Conte, Lampugh and Muir. There are also images showing members of the U. S. Geological Survey team and their boat, the Beilby. Seventeen of the 348 prints listed in the caption lists are not included in the collection.

Arrangement: The photographs from the first two album are arranged in numerical order. The handwritten numbers on the photographs correspond to the numbers found in the caption list. The photographs from the third album were arranged by numbers on the backs of the photographs, lot numbers, and type and location of captions.
