The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, Region 1 photograph collection consists of photographs from records of the NAACP Region 1 Office, and includes material from NAACP branches in the Western United States, the NAACP National Office and other organizations from ca. 1940-1982. Region 1 includes the states of Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, and Washington. Images range from professionally produced photographs and news service photographs to snapshots. Subjects include membership drives, fundraisers, voter registration and other events as well as portraits. Materials such as publicity shots of national figures and events were presumably received from the National Office.

By 1947, this Office expanded to include Arizona, Idaho, Utah and the territory of Hawaii, and by 1952 it included the territory of Alaska.
