The Frederick James Ladd Photographic Collection (circa 1969-1999) is now available for research in the University Archives at the Albert S. Cook Library. The finding aid is searchable online (http://library.towson.edu/cdm/compoundobject/collection/mssfa/id/208), while the physical materials can be consulted at the Archives and Special Collections room located on the 5th floor of the library.
This rich collection contains approximately 12,500 slides, as well as other materials, chiefly relating to the topic of art history. Many of the slides were probably taken by Dr. Frederic James Ladd, a former faculty member in the Art History Department at Towson University. The images correspond to various art historical periods, including Greek, Roman, Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, and others.
