Extra! Extra! We were featured in the Oakwood Register newspaper on July 5 with an article about our Louis Lott architecture photos.
The article, “Wright State archive preserves architectural images of early Oakwood, Dayton : Archivists hope to identify homes photographed by prominent local architect,” focuses on the Louis Lott Architecture Negatives Collection (SC-381). Over 200 images from the collection are available online in CORE Scholar.
Check out the Oakwood Register article here (see page 8).
Thanks to the article, we have already had multiple readers contact us to provide identifications to some of the previously unidentified homes featured in the online gallery.
If you have additional information about any of the photographs, the best way to share that with us via email at [email protected], and be sure to include the item identifier number (e.g., sc381_01_04_03) or URL (e.g., https://corescholar.libraries.wright.edu/special_sc381_photographs/25/) for the particular image.
If you are interested in seeing the records that have been recently updated based on additional information submitted by users, search the collection for the word thanks (or click this link).
