Charles Weever Cushman, amateur photographer and Indiana University alumnus, bequeathed approximately 14,500 Kodachrome color slides to his alma mater. The photographs in this collection bridge a thirty-two year span from 1938 to 1969, during which time he extensively documented the United States as well as other countries. This project was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services in partnership with the Indiana University Libraries including the University Archives.
