In order to help meet picture research needs early in the 20th-century, portraits were culled from the Print Collection and arranged by subject. Formats include original woodcuts, engravings, etchings, lithographs, and, occasionally, photographs, but for the most part the portraits are printed pictures clipped from periodical publications from the mid-19th through the early 20th-century.
There is limited indexing, in the form of a card file available in the department, of additional portrait prints in the Print Collection.
