Background Image Stafford County's Glass Plate Negatives Project

Preserving History with Thousands of Glass Plate Negatives

undefined

Stafford County was home to W.R. Gray a turn of the century photographer who produced the largest collection of photos specific to one geographical region in the country. Gray collection consists of around 30,000 glass plate negatives that the Stafford County Historical Society has been systematically preserving with the help of HK’s Cultural Preservation Grant.

The goal of this project is to tie individual stories of unique communities together to create a larger understanding of Kansas culture and history. To learn more about Stafford County’s massive preservation project, watch our short documentary about the historians and community volunteers responsible for the effort.
