Emily Hartman Collection

Identifier: HFLA 042

Scope and Contents

The Emily Hartman materials collection contains photographic slides, documents, and other materials from her time working with botanical specimens. Most photographs and materials are from her research in Colorado, but there are materials from outside of the state of Colorado as well. Photographic slides were originally arranged by the creator Emily Hartman based on location and subject matter of the photographs. Original order has been maintained though materials have been transferred to archival housing and enclosures.
