Image Arrangement and Numbering

The pages of the Crowe album are still intact and were photographed consecutively, front to back. Several photographs originally attached to those pages were loose or missing when the album was donated to MDAH and were kept in the order they were received. An unknown person numbered and indexed some, but not all, of the pages.

Technical Details

Digital Photographs: The MDAH Archives and Records Services Division's Image and Sound section used a Nikon D70 digital camera on a copy stand to capture images of the album in June 2006, creating 300 ppi 24-bit RGB NEF files.

Conversion: For preservation purposes, the native NEF files were also saved as TIFF files. The Electronic Archives staff used Zoomify to convert the TIFF files to 24-bit RGB JPEG files for access. Flash Player version 6 or later is required to view the Zoomify interface for the JPEG images.

Suggested Bibliographic Citation

MDAH suggests that citations for images from the Web-enabled version of the Crowe (Milburn J.) Photograph Album include the following elements: collection name, unique image no., agency name, date of last web page revision, <Image URL> (date viewed).

Rights Management

The photographs in the Crowe (Milburn J.) Photograph Album are in the public domain and therefore free of copyright or other use restrictions. MDAH asks that each image used in a presentation, display, or publication be accompanied by the following credit statement:
