The images in this collection come from 35 mm. Kodachrome slides or .jpg pictures taken by Claude Welch, SUNY Distinguished Professor in the Department of Political Science. He started his teaching career in 1964, directly after completing his doctoral work at Oxford. The images reflect a wide span of his interests and continents, with particular strength in sub-Saharan Africa, Western Europe, India and China. Although many of the images have yet to be fully catalogued at this point, they will be brought up to date by mid-2013.
