Photo by Grabill : A Legacy of Images
LSUS Archives and Special Collections at Noel Memorial Library is proud to present a photographic celebration of the work of two of Shreveport's most important and gifted photographers, father and son, Burch and William Grabill. Their professional legacy of photographic negatives and prints, generously donated by the Grabill family to the Noel Library, represents one of the largest and most important visual archives of Shreveport and area history of the twentieth century. This heirloom-quality coffee table book brings together approximately 200 of the most historically relevant and visually appealing examples of the Grabills’ work. The result of their diverse and prolific photographic efforts, encompassing more than eight decades, is an unsurpassed visual legacy of area social and cultural history.
Books are available for purchase from Archives and Special Collections located on the third floor of the Noel Memorial Library at LSUS. To have copies mailed, the cost is $40.00 per book (this includes $5.00 per book to cover shipping and handling). Please send a check payable to:
