All Series Level Scope and Content Notes

The Charles R. Martin Photograph Collection is comprised of photographic prints, negatives and a small amount of manuscript material that remains with associated prints. Items date from 1945 to 2011 with the bulk of the collection dating between 1966 and 1999.

All negatives are identified with an identification number and, in most cases, an accompanying title. For instance, a negative sleeve reading 684.10 would translate to "April 1968, roll 10." Photographic prints also bear this identification with the addition of the frame number such as, "684.10-28." Most prints also bear a stamp with Martin's name and address.



This series contains 189 35mm black and white negatives taken by Martin on April 7, 1968 that document the march that occurred in Pittsburgh on the National Day of Mourning three days after the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on April 4, 1968. The images in this series are scanned and appear online. Never published before, these images provide the most significant and unique documentation of the march.
