The History Commission's collections contain over a half-million photographic images of Arkansas and its people throughout history. The collection consists of black-and-white prints and negatives, as well as rarer daguerreotypes, tintypes, ambrotypes, and cyanotypes. Line drawings, postcards, engravings, and portraits are also included. While most of the photographs in the Arkansas History Commission's collections have not been digitized, some 13,000 of them have been and are available through our online catalog and through Documenting Arkansas.
Photographs are available for viewing in our research room. If you would like to order a print of a photograph in our collection, please fill out our Photograph Order Form, then mail it and a check for the photocopy fee to: Arkansas History Commission, One Capitol Mall, Little Rock, AR 72201.
