Image Arrangement and Numbering

The photographic curator numbered the prints in the order they were received from Mrs. Luther M. Hamilton Jr. Duplicate prints (made from the same negatives) were not scanned, so there are gaps in the image numbers.

Technical Details

Digital Photographs: The original scans of the Hamilton (Luther) Photograph Collection were made by the Image & Sound Section staff in 2009-2010, according to the Mississippi Department of Archives and History Board of Trustees' approved imaging procedures, following ANSI/AIIM recommended practice. The images were scanned as uncompressed, 24-bit RGB (for color prints) and 8-bit Grayscale (for black-and-white negatives and prints) TIFF files at 600 pixels per inch.

Conversion: For Web display, the original scans of the Hamilton (Luther) Photograph Collection were converted to JPEG images in July 2010.
