Welch-Ludwig Collection

Posted on: | by Stacy Person |

I am delighted to announce the launch of the Welch-Ludwig Collection, our newest but longest-in-development digital collection.

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 cataloged at this point, they will be brought up to date by mid-2013.

To that end, if you have a few minutes and would like to see if there’s anything you can add to the metadata, we’d love to have your input.

The collection can be viewed at If you see any images that need additional metadata that you can contribute, please drop me an email ( with the Item ID and whatever information you have. Or, leave the same information in the comments.
