||The photographs in this collection were taken by Hans Weissenstein, a commercial photographer,
for the Teachers Guild and later the United Federation of Teachers (American Federation
of Teachers, Local 2). The images depict public school teachers and associated personnel
in New York City. The collection consists of a total of 22,110 black and white photographic
negatives arranged in 1,364 shoots that span the years 1949 to 1977, but are concentrated
in the early 1970s. These images document the UFT and its activities, chapters and
members, and New York City schools and students. A small, but significant number of
images concern one of the UFT's predecessor unions, the Teachers' Guild.
