Custodial history

Scope and content

Sub-series consists of photographs, negatives, photocopies, postcards, cut-outs, drawings, and rubbings acquired by Duff. Images consist of views of wooden and panel pipes; boxes and chests; dishes, bowls, plates, spoons, and other household articles; coppers; chief’s seats; coffins; carvings and poles; cloaks and blankets; bracelets; screens; masks and frontlets; paddles and canoes; and photos of Albert Edenshaw. Also included are textual records that describe the images.

Physical condition

Immediate source of acquisition


The sub-series is arranged into seven binders. The photographs were originally housed behind plastic sheets in 8 loose-leaf binders; many were mounted with photographic corners. The materials were initially processed in 1977, to facilitate their use for teaching and research purposes. At that time, the pages of binders 1 to 7 were numbered, the artifacts on each page identified and recorded, and loose material mounted on added pages. Binder 8 was neither numbered nor listed.

It is assumed that this early processing preserved Duff’s arrangement of the materials. Blank pages and mounting corners indicate that some photos are missing; but a 1977 listing of the materials suggests that this represented the order as received. Originally misplaced, binder 6 was rediscovered in May 1997 and processed in the description. The current inventory has maintained the existing, and presumed original, order of the remaining binders.
