B. F. Fort Collection
Inclusive dates: 1870-1914 (prominent dates c. 1899-1914)


Scope Notes

This collection contains 293 images. Five commercially made slide programs account for 92 of these images, while the other 201 were taken by Davenport resident and amateur photographer Benjamin Franklin (B. F.) Fort. Most of the Fort images were taken on a trip to Colorado that B. F. Fort took in the summer of 1914, but approximately 50 of those images relate to local sites. Also included are misc. archival materials, some of which document Fort's trip to Pike's Peak.

Much of B. F. Fort's original camera and developing equipment used to produce these images is also in the Museum's collection.

Inventory

Bawden Bros. Collection 1962-75
Date: 1845-1941 (predominant dates: c. 1920-41)


Scope Notes

This collection is comprised primarily of images taken by Bawden Brothers, Inc., Advertising Service, Illustrators, Engravers, and Printers of Davenport. The majority are original although some are copies apparently made for some specific purpose from another work. A wide range of subjects are included (see list of major sub-collections and subject headings below).

Cellulose nitrate negatives originally formed a large portion of this collection. These nitrate negatives and some safety negatives that had been damaged by their long term proximity to the nitrates (1962.75.38-97, 110, 112, 120-252, 254-420) were duplicated and prints made with the help of a state grant in May and June 1992 (see Box 1, folder 2 for information about grant and duplication process). The rest of the collection is comprised of safety negatives or prints. Prints exist for all images except safety negatives 1962.75.98-109, 111, 113, 119. Negatives exist for 1962.75.1, 2, 38-422

Images 1962.75.38-333 have been arranged according to the identification numbers written on them by the Bawdens themselves. The remainder were unnumbered. Remnants of existing original envelopes and photocopies of same are located in Box 1, folder 1.
Images 457-471 have been removed to oversize storage (Cabinet 1, Drawer 1, #3, 15, 18, 19).

WHENEVER IMAGES ARE USED FOR AN EXHIBIT, PUBLICATION, OR OTHER USE, THEY MUST BE CREDITED TO “BAWDEN BROTHERS COLLECTION, PUTNAM MUSEUM”­

Michael Blaser Collection
Inclusive Dates: 1840-1940; mostly 1900-1940


Scope Notes
 
Must use credit line: Michael Blaser Collection.
This collection was purchased by Michael Blaser for the Museum from the B.A. Roseberg Estate. Roseberg was Judge William Maines son in law.
 
The collection contains over 750 prints (most with matching negatives), 22 postcards, 105nitrate negatives and 7 glass negatives, which document over 300 riverboats on the Mississippi, Illinois, and Ohio Rivers. The collection also includes a ribbon from the Steamer Morning Star, and 2 booklets of steamboat names, information and lists.
 
The prints with matching negatives (1166) are mostly original images which date mainly from the 1930s. Prints do not exist for the nitrate negatives and negatives 86j, k, 110p, 116, 252 and 305af. Many of the nitrate negatives are copy negatives. However, numbers 203, 205, 223, 228, 248, 263, and 277 portray boats which are not otherwise represented in the Museum’s photograph collection.
 
Negatives (except nitrate) are stored in Box 1. Prints are in Boxes 2 & 3. Ribbon and booklets are in Box3. The nitrate negatives are currently stored in a bin, in the women’s restroom on the dock, pending funds to have copy prints made.
