Collection Overview

Title:

Photographic negatives from the Franz Schurmann papers

Creator/Contributor:

Schurmann, Franz, 1926-2010, creator

Abstract:

Chiefly unidentified rolls of film. Many, if not all, are believed to be from Schurmann's research travels in Afghanistan in the late 1950s. His work there focused on the Hazara people, and resulted in the 1962 book The Mongols of Afghanistan. A few film cannisters have single words penciled on them, and those that are legible note "Kabul", "Herat", "Mazar", and possibly "Balkh". Some rolls may be from Yugoslavia ("Yugo"), and from India ("India"? and "Pal-i").

Date:

ca. 1957-1958 (issued)
