New image gallery published

 We have published a completely redesigned and updated gallery of portraits of Whitman. The new version of the gallery offers an easier and more robust search, improved scans of many of the portraits, and a revised set of notes about all of Whitman’s photographers. The index page of the gallery now allows users to see thumbnail versions of all the portraits on one page; clicking on any thumbnail image brings up a large scan of the image, along with information about the place, date, creator, and circumstances of the photograph, as well as information about the physical image and its location. Most recently, this work was led by Alex Ashland and Ed Folsom.
