Guide to the Irish Echo Photographs
||Irish Echo Photographs
||The Irish Echo is a nationally circulated ethnic newspaper published weekly in New York City since
1928. The paper covers political, social, entertainment, and sporting news from both
Ireland and Irish America, in addition to national and international content from
the perspective of the Irish American community. This collection consists of the photographic
prints, transparencies, and photographic slides used to produce
The Irish Echo. Common subjects documented include Irish and Irish American politicians, society
events, sporting events, musical groups, arts and cultural events, and visiting celebrities
and dignitaries. The files provide visual documentation of Irish American communities
and American assimilation processes in the late 20th century. Particularly rich are
the images portraying the ways in which these populations negotiated their dual identities
and transmuted cultural traditions.
