Collection Description

The Randy Randazzo Collection contains 1,083 photonegatives and 4,322 postcards, ephemera, and photographic prints that feature the Mississippi Gulf Coast and South Mississippi. Mr. Randazzo attributes most of the negatives to Anthony (Tony) Ragusin of Biloxi, a professional photographer who covered the Gulf Coast from the 1930's to the 1970's.


The postcards, photographic prints, and other memorabilia were collected by Mr. Randazzo between 1992 and 2015. The photonegatives were inherited from an uncle, Walter Fountain, who was a Biloxi historian. The collection was donated to MDAH by Randy Randazzo in September 2015.
