Description
We are cleaning, preserving and storing approximately 60,000 9 x 9-inch black & white USDA aerial photos. The photos are dated between 1950 and 1971 and represent 104 of the 105 counties in Kansas. Most of the counties have at least two different years worth of photos. The collection has been cataloged in OCLC. A website displays photo index sheets and allows users to request digital images. Digitizing the collection is underway. Images are available through K-State Research Exchange (KREx).
