Reunited and It Feels So Good?: Reunifying the Baltimore News American Collection
MetadataShow full item record
The Baltimore News American was a newspaper that operated in Baltimore for nearly two hundred years and closed in 1986. After closing the Hearst Corporation donated the photographs, and clippings morgue to the University of Maryland, College Park while the bulk of the photographic negatives were donated to the University of Maryland, Baltimore County. In 2018 an agreement was reached that would reunite the collection in College Park. Moving the photographic negatives would prove to be more complex than initially thought. The collection at UMBC consisted of approximately 48,000 glass plate and acetate negatives that were housed together in the basement of the Albin O. Kuhn Library.
