New Digital Collection: Robert Lanier Collection

Paths Through Court Square

 

Judge Robert Lanier has always been a generous friend of the Memphis Room.

Once again, he has given us a gift — this time, a collection of 295 photographs documenting the evolution of some of Memphis’ buildings and public spaces.   Spanning from the 1950s to the present, the Robert Lanier Collection includes images of Beale Street, Court Square, Overton Park, the Tennessee Club, Main Street, Overton Square, the Exchange Building, and so much more.

Our sincere thanks also go out to volunteer Victoria Grey, who not only processed the collection and created a finding aid, but digitized the entire collection as well.

Enjoy!
