Abbot - Custis: photographs and portraits of groups

The VMHC maintains an extensive series of photograph files that may contain a combination of original photographs, prints and other images, along with copies of portraits, photographs and other images from the VMHC holdings, from other repositories or in private hands.

The group files are organized by the name of the group, family name, company, or the name of the leading individual in the group (for example, "T. J. Jackson and staff").

Researchers who determine that the VMHC holds a photograph file for a particular person or group in which they have an interest should then request an appointment to view the files to determine their exact content.

Researchers should also be aware that the VMHC holds some photographs and other images in its manuscripts collection, usually as part of a collection of family or personal papers, or of a group of business records. Thus, a search of the online catalog is also advised. 

The group files are organized by the name of the group, family name, company, or the name of the leading individual in the group (e.g. "T.G. Jackson and staff"). Topics that have a "see also" reference should be checked for additional materials in the online catalog.
