Gerald L. French Photograph Collection

About this Collection

The Gerald L. French Photograph Collection documents the San Jose State College West Coast School of Nature Study program held in Death Valley in 1958. Gerald L. French, then a San Jose State College student, attended this program and donated this collection to the university. The images document the activities, events, and participants on this field trip. The digital collection consists of forty-two 4x5 inch negatives and twenty-seven 35 mm color slides. Forty-one black and white prints which duplicate most of the negatives are included in the physical collection, but are not part of the digital collection. For additional information about using images in this collection contact the SJSU Special Collections Department. View this collection on the contributor's website.
