The Charles R. Martin Photographs 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.
