Scope and Contents

The collection includes newsletters and administrative records of the Park West Camera Club (PWCC), and examples of the photographs taken by its members. The records are not complete, but do hold substantial runs of important documents. The newsletters date primarily from 1984 to 2014. Minutes of meetings are primarily from 1947-1959, with some from the late 1970s and early 1980s. Some of the club's group activities are documented, most notably its 2015 exhibition Through Our Eyes and the 2017 exhibition celebrating PWCC's 80th anniversary. Original photographic prints by members comprise a significant part of the collection. These photographs range in date from the 1940s to the early 2000s.


The collection is organized in four series:

Series I. Newsletters (1984-2014)

Series II. Administrative Files (1946-1959, 1978-2017)

Series III. Club Activities and Exhibitions (1947-2017)

Series IV. Photography by Members (1940s-2000s)
