The collection has 1,610 negatives of photographs taken by Charley (Clayton) Howe (1897-
1989) in southern California and Mexico between 1947 and 1972. A serious amateur photographer
and avid avocational archaeologist, Howe was an adventurous, desert-loving member of the
Archaeological Survey Association of Southern California, Inc. (“ASA”). The images document Howe’s travels and many of ASA’s
archaeological fieldtrips and excavations. There are hundreds of excellent photographs of petroglyphs and pictographs. Many
of the archaeological sites and the rock art no longer exist. Details of cameras and films used by Howe are summarized by
year and location. Two indexes help to locate negatives in the collection.
