Manuscripts and Photographs

The manuscripts area of the Hargrett Rare Book and Manuscript Library is the repository for over six million individual items including family papers, diaries, letters, theatrical papers, corporate and organizational papers. Included in this count are over five hundred thousand images, made up of drawings, paintings, photographs, daguerreotypes, tintypes, cased images, slides and negatives.

The manuscripts area collects primarily materials relating to Georgia and Georgians, though the international performing arts collections form a second major strength. Chronologically, the collections are strongest in 19th Century materials.
