Series X. Photographic Prints, ca. 1890-ca. 1980

Scope and Content Notes:

The Photographic Print Series consists primarily of 8x10 photographs produced from the negatives in Series IX, either for original Carnegie Steel or U.S. Steel use or for research use in the archives. Some prints in this series are the only copies available of images taken prior to 1941. Prints in this series are grouped in folders according to subject and are loosely separated into the following five categories: Steel Production and Plant Operations; Management and Worker Social Activities; Miscellaneous; Photograph Albums; Oversize Prints (of q size). Of particular interest in the miscellaneous category are photocopies containing William J. Gaughan's commentaries and descriptions of accompanying photographs.
