Biographical/Historical Note

Myron House and other faculty members published two pictorial history books using photographs from the community and from Special Collections, titled At Home in Carrollton (1995) and From A&M to State University (1998). This collection was created as part of that process, modeled after the Vanishing Georgia series of the Georgia Department of Archives and History. House used the same type of metadata card for each photograph, noting who owned the original, and containing a thumbnail copy photograph. The bulk of this collection functions as a pictorial index to photographs depicting Carroll County history.

Scope and Content Note

A picture collection of over 1,800 mostly historic images represented by thumbnail copy photos of original photographs owned by people and libraries in the community. The images are not indexed.


The collection is arranged as follows: each index card carries a unique number with prefix CAR. The cards are filed in number order. In addition, there is a box of loose copy photographs, some with CAR number and others not identified. One box contains folders arranged alphabetically by folder title, pertaining to negatives made when the original photographs were copied, as well as a number of original photographs of various vintages.
