The cased photograph collection in the State Archives & Library Division of the Kansas Historical Society includes more than 200 one-of-a-kind daguerreotypes, ambrotypes, and tintypes. These are some of the oldest and most unique photographs owned by the Historical Society. In order to help preserve and improve access to these photos, we scanned the entire collection, which is now available on Kansas Memory.
Many of these photographs were created prior to, or during, the Civil War. Making them available now contributes to our understanding and celebration of Kansas statehood and the Civil War.
