Image Arrangement and Numbering

The 97 photographs were arranged in alphanumeric/chronological order, as assigned by the digital camera. Charles L. Sullivan deleted some files before donating the group to MDAH, so some image numbers are missing. The "Browse Collection" option displays the scans of the photographs in their original order.

Technical Details

Digital Photographs: The Shaifer House Dedication Photographs were taken by Charles L. Sullivan November 20, 2007, using a digital camera. The original images are 2592 x 1944 pixel, 24-bit RGB JPEG files.

Conversion: The MDAH Electronic Archives staff made smaller (500 x 375 pixel, 24-bit RGB) JPEG copies for Web access in December 2009.

Suggested Bibliographic Citation

MDAH suggests that citations for images from the Web-enabled version of the Shaifer House Dedication Photographs include the following elements: collection name, unique image no., agency name, date of last web page revision, <Image URL> (date viewed).

Rights Management

There are no known restrictions on use of images within the Shaifer House Dedication Photographs. MDAH asks that each image used in a presentation, display, or publication be accompanied by the following credit statement.
