Gordon Meinecke fonds

  • F 2007.006
  • Fonds
  • [ca. 1950]-2007

The fonds consists of photographic chemicals, printing paper, film, dry plates, pamphlets, journals, trade circulars and photo bulbs collected by Gordon Meinecke during the course of his career, and from personal interest as a collector of historical artifacts. Meinecke worked in various photographic formats including 11x14, 8x10, 4x5, 2 ¼, and 35mm, sometimes producing prints as large as 30x40 inches. He primarily employed Kodak material for these purposes, but films from other manufacturers of photographic supplies can be found in the fonds, including Agfa Ansco Company, Ilford Limited, Polaroid and Triple Print Film Labs. Antique film packages, produced by companies like The Stanley Dry Plate Company or Dufaycolor Inc., are mainly empty or opened, and were collected for their historical value rather than for photographic use. A selection of photo lamps and flashbulbs from Osram, General Electric and the Wabash Photolamp Corporation are included in the collection, as well as two glass plate drying racks.
