New Digital Collection: Saul Brown

A hallway, filled with photographs by Saul Brown. Saul pokes his head out from a doorway about halfway back.

Two summers ago, intern Emily Baker took on the Herculean task of processing a collection of thousands of photos, slides and negatives from Memphis photographer Saul Brown.  She did a masterful job of organizing the items and creating a finding aid, and she even managed to find the time to scan a representative image from each section of the collection.  Thanks to Emily, you can now view 500+  images from the Saul Brown Photograph Collection on Dig Memphis.  The collection features Brown’s work beyond his 20 years as a staff photographer for the Press-Scimitar: travels in Europe, Asia, and North America; promotional photography for Memphis theaters; and the faces and places of Memphis.
