Bachrach Photograph Collection, 2002

Bachrach Photograph Collection, 2002

Finding Aid

Collection No. P24
D.C. Community Archives


There is no deed of gift. However, a letter from archivist Faye Haskins indicates that the collection was donated in June 2002 after the exhibit, Washington’s Millennium Leaders – Through the Bachrach Lens, concluded.

Scope and Content Note

The collection consists of 156 8"x10" portraits, of which only one is in black-and-white. The images were used in an exhibit entitled "Washington’s Millennium Leaders – Through the Bachrach Lens," which was on display at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library from Jan. 24, 2002 through April 2002.

During that time, two images, Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton and Armstrong Williams, were stolen and never recovered. Bachrach Studios was asked to replace the missing images, however the request from Ms. Haskins went unanswered. Each portrait is matted and permanently mounted between sheets of mat board. As part of the exhibit, each person’s names and affiliations have been placed on each mounting. The collection is arranged alphabetically by surname, which is believed to be the exhibits original order.  

Processing Procedures

After exhibition, the portrait panels were accessioned into the D.C. Community Archives collection and placed in archival storage boxes. In 2006, sheets of buffer paper were placed between each image for added protection and the boxes were returned to the D.C. Community Archives for long-term storage.   


Bachrach Studios retains all copyright to the images in this collection and patrons are NOT permitted to order photographic reproductions through Washingtoniana and the DC Public Library without written permission from the Bachrach Studios.

Reproductions/permissions can be obtained from Bachrach Studios, 321 South Washington St., Alexandria, Va. 22314, (703) 548-2111.
