New Online Exhibit: Selections from the F.S. Lincoln Photograph Collection

The F.S. Lincoln photograph collection from our Historical Collections and Labor Archives unit contains approximately 10,000 original negatives and proof prints. During the course of his forty-year career in commercial photography, Lincoln (1894-1976) established himself as one of the most influential and widely respected architectural photographers in America. This collection was donated in 1973, after Lincoln’s retirement to Centre Hall (Pa.).

“Selections from the Fay S. Lincoln Photograph Collection” features views of 1930s Manhattan and New York Harbor, Lincoln’s travels in France, and sculpture by the Japanese artist Isamu Noguchi. The physical exhibit will be on display at the Hintz Family Alumni Center, on Penn State’s University Park campus, from June 9–September 8, 2010. Click here for the online version of the exhibit.
