The images in this library were largely taken during GSCI research projects by staff or individuals involved in our research. These are a small selection of the more than 5,000 photographs currently on file. We hope to make more available in the future as we digitize our photo collection. Please note that the photographs included in the History section may also come from Archival and/or published works not generated by GSCI. Please credit the photographer and source of all photographs as indicated.
