Photographer John Wood (b. around 1817 in England)

I am looking for information regarding a photographer named John Wood.  He was born around 1817 in England and then immigrated to the United States prior to 1857 where he took up residence in the Washington D.C. area.  I have not been able to find any information about him prior to his immigration but am fairly certain he worked as a photographer before coming to the US.  Any leads would be most welcome!  Thank you!See More

"I have met a photographic dealer in Santa Fe, I think named Smith,  who has some  prints and papers. There is a retired successful photographer named Ford now living in Woodbridge who has Evans's notes for lectures to Camera Clubs. Dr…"

Map Reproductions in Salted Paper by the English Ordnance Survey

I have been researching a Civil War map reproduction technique involving the photographing or direct copying of maps using the salted paper process.  These maps were fairly common in the United States during the Civil War due to the limited availability of lithographic presses as well as the increased demand for up-to-date…See More

"As a professional photograph conservator, I would agree that you would want to get someone with extensive experience specifically with daguerreotypes.  I am less familiar with conservators in Europe but have seen beautiful work done by Clara…"

Mike Ware commented on Adrienne Lundgren's blog post Glycerine Developed Platinum Prints
"Greetings Adrienne, The earliest reference I can find to the use of "glycerine development" of Platinotypes in the UK is an address and demonstration to the Camera Club in June 1893 by William Willis himself. It's reported in: W.…"

Glycerine Developed Platinum Prints

I am conducting research on the use of the glycerine in the development of platinum prints and have compiled a list of artists that have used it in the United States, including Kasebier, Clarence White, F. Holland Day, Stieglitz, and of course Joseph Keiley (amongst others.)  However, I have very few examples of artists using the technique in Europe.  If anyone has any leads I might follow I would really appreciate your help.  Thank you!

"I am sure you checked the Eastman House but if you didn't you should.  They have a a very nice collection of Claudet stereo daguerreotypes as well as some very interesting manuscript drawings relating to his studies on stereo optics. …"

Frederick Evans Papers

I am looking for anyone who knows what might have happened to the paper archives and/or photograph collections of Frederick Evans.  I know that many images in his collection went to the Royal Photographic Society and are now in Bradford and some of the images ended up at the George Eastman House.   But I know that he owned some images that I have been unable to track down.  I was wondering if perhaps they were still with the family or if a particular dealer/collector/institution has a…
