(TC-93)
Housed in repositories throughout the University, daguerreotypes at Harvard represent a collection of international significance and offer primary evidence of early uses of photography as a tool for artistic expression and scientific research in mid-19th-century America.

The collections also represent the work of many well-known daguerreotypists including Matthew Brady, Southworth and Hawes, and John Adams Whipple.
