British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Reporting to the Associate Librarian of Houghton Library for Technical Services, the Horblit Project Cataloger performs original and complex copy cataloging of the photograph portion of the Horblit Collection of Early Photography and coordinates the digitization of the collection.  Note: This is a 2 year term position. An end date will be determined based on start date.

The Harrison D. Horblit Collection of Early Photography came to Houghton Library in 1995 as the gift of Mrs. Harrison D. Horblit and is one of the premier collections of early photographs. Harrison Horblit (1912-1988, Harvard College Class of 1933) began collecting early photography as a result of his interest in the history of science and technology.  The photography collection, over 7000 items, begins with some of the earliest photographic negatives and prints, daguerreotypes, and early works describing the invention of photography. It includes examples of all the photographic processes used in the nineteenth century and the images represent all the major photographers of that era.
