The Texas/Dallas History and Archives Division of the Dallas Public Li-
brary has announced the acquisition of the Clint Grant Photograph Col-
lection. Donald Clinton "Clint" Grant was staff photographer for the Dal-
las Morning News from 1949 until 1998, and the collection contains more
than 2,ooo vintage prints and 6,00o negatives, offering a unique view of
Dallas during these years.
Grant was the official photographer of the Dallas Zoo and the State Fair
of Texas. His work also documents many historic events, including John
Kennedy's arrival at Love Field in 1963, Sam Rayburn's funeral, and the
trial of Jack Ruby. Among the many people that Grant captured on film
are some of the most notable Dallasites and Texans, including Rayburn,
Stanley Marcus, Trammell Crow, Bob Thornton, George B. Dealey, John
Connally, J. Erik Jonsson, and Earl Cabell. He also covered presidential
visits, from Harry S Truman to George Bush Sr.
Grant's work earned him many photojournalism awards, and it was
published in numerous periodicals, including Life, Newsweek, and Time.

The Amon Carter Museum has signed an agreement with the Smith-
sonian Institution, Archives of American Art, in Washington, D.C., to be-
come an associated repository of the Archives' unrestricted microfilm col-
lection of approximately 7,500 reels. The Archives of American Art is the
largest and most significant repository of primary source material on the
history of the visual arts in the United States. The collection consists of
more than 15 million documents-from artists' letters, sketches and jour-
nals to the records of important galleries and organizations-that have
been processed. Those collections that have significant research potential
or are in questionable physical condition are the ones that have been
placed on microfilm. The first microfilm will be available to researchers
in the museum's library by appointment as early as summer 2004.
The Amon Carter Museum will be the only location between the two
coasts with direct access to the Archives' microfilm holdings. The
Archives also has regional centers at the Huntington Library, Art Collec-
tions, and Botanical Gardens in San Marino, California, and in New York
City. Contact the museum's librarian, Allen Townsend, for more informa-
