Immediate Source of Acquisition

Series I: Most of the photographs in this group were either commissioned by the New-York Historical Society or were printed for exhibition purposes. The St. Paul's Chapel and rescue workers images were done by Racioppo on commission from N-YHS (2002). The fireman's funeral image was donated by Racioppo, February 2003. The 2004 rescue images may have been a donation from Racioppo but that is uncertain.

Series II: Gift of Larry Racioppo, 2017 (accession no. PPAC-2017-82).

Series III: Gift of Larry Racioppo, 2017 (accession no. PPAC-2017-88).

Series IV: Gift of Bruce Berman and Lea Russo, 2016 (accession no. PPAC-2016-47).

Series V: Gift of Larry Racioppo, 2017 (accession no. PPAC-2017-82).
