Neal Douglass Photography Collection

The Neal Douglass Photography Collection comes from the Austin History Center, Austin Public Library. Douglass, a photojournalist for the Austin American-Statesman, also maintained his own studio. The collection is an invaluable resource of information illustrating many aspects of Austin life during the years, 1930-1969, a period poorly represented by other existing Austin History Center Collections. Specific events, cultural aspects of life, and former buildings and customs are depicted in photographs that comprise the collection.
