ASC Releases Harold Corsini Photograph Collection
The Archives Service Center has mounted a selection of 600 photographs
by noted photographer Harold Corsini. Corsini (1919-2008) worked as a freelance photographer in Pittsburgh for much of his long life. The images selected for digitization, taken during the 1940s-1970s, best represent the creative and commercial content of Corsini's work as a professional photographer as well as an artist. They comprise commercial photographs taken for local and national businesses, industrial photographs taken for US Steel as well as images from WWII and of Southeast Asia and East Africa. The images can be searched or browsed by topic. The ASC acquired his 55,000+ photographic collection in 2007. Please consult the collection finding aid
for more information.
