Williams Haynes Portrait Collection

64 items

This collection, only a small portion of which is digitized here, consists of approximately 1,700 portraits of chemists, chemical industrialists, and notable individuals from chemical-related fields, including Leo Baekeland, Herbert H. Dow, the DuPont family, William Henry Perkin, and Rosalind Sussman Yalow. The portraits are arranged alphabetically by subject and span the 1800s to the 1960s, though the majority of the collection dates from the first half of the 20th century. Formal studio portraits predominate and formats include print photographs, cartes-de-visite, photogravures, silver gelatin prints, engravings, and etchings.
