About this collection


The images in The Otis Marston Colorado River Collection depict river-running, history, landscape, and individuals in the Colorado, Green, San Juan, Salmon, and Snake river basins for the period 1870-1978. The photos, while focused on the rivers include very substantial material on the entire drainage systems of these rivers and the history, people, and public policy issues concerning those systems. Though many of the images were taken by Otis Marston, the work of over 600 other photographers is present among the 39,000 photographs.

 

All still images except photomechanicals available onsite on Photo CD and by order as digital prints from the Manuscripts Dept., Henry E. Huntington Library, 1151 Oxford Rd., San Marino, CA.
