In 1904 Harry Alverson Franck set out for a year of travel. He had a brand new degree from the University of Michigan, $104 in his pocket, and a Kodak camera in his knapsack. That adventure resulted in his first book, A Vagabond Journey Around the World, illustrated with “more than one hundred photographs.” Over the next forty years Franck published more than thirty such illustrated travel books. His children donated his archive, including thousands of photographs on nitrate film and glass, to the University of Michigan Library Special Collections in 1988. Presenters will talk about the challenges of preserving those photographs and making them available through digitization.

Presenters from U-M Library:

* Randal Stegmeyer — Digital Photographer, Digital Conversion Unit
* Larry Wentzel — Digital Conversion Production Manager, Digital Conversion Unit
* Shannon Zachary — Head, Department of Preservation and Conservation
