Part of that collection was some 400 gelatin silver prints made by William Webb from Adam Clark Vroman original glass plate negatives. The prints were made during the period 1961-1972 and comprise a numbered set, one of few ever produced. Many of the prints appear in the William Webb and Robert A. Weinstein book, DWELLERS AT THE SOURCE. The prints cover A. C. Vroman's work during the period 1895 to 1904.
