The collection was assembled by Frederick Hill Meserve, called America's first photograph collector, and his daughter Dorothy Meserve, and serves to document American history spanning from the Civil War up to the end of the 19th century. This includes an extensive look at photography as it developed over the decades, with approximately 57,000 prints being included within the collection."
