This collection consists of photograph slides, some of which were used as illustrations in the publication of the History of Tennessee section of the Bicentennial Edition of the Tennessee Blue Book. Most of the images in these slides were from the collections of the Tennessee State Library and Archives, but other institutions furnished materials for this undertaking. These were: Tennessee Photographic Services; the Tennessean and Nashville Banner newspapers; the Vanderbilt University Jean and Alexander Heard Library Special Collections and University Archives; the University of Tennessee- Knoxville, Hoskins Library, Special Collections; the Tennessee State Museum; Fisk University; the Kansas State Historical Society. These slides will be available for reference purposes. Patrons should consult an archivist and the photographer of the Tennessee State Library and Archives on producing copies of any images in this collection.
