Scope Note

The photographs reflect mainly ceremonial aspects of Mayor Schiro's activities. Schiro's 1962 and 1966 inaugurations are included, as are photographs depicting the mayor's participation in groundbreakings, parades, trips abroad, presentations of keys to the city, receptions and other ceremonies for visiting dignitaries, etc. The 1967 visit of Nicarauguan president Anastasio Somoza is particularly well represented.

Many additional photographs from the Schiro administration can be found among the photographs in the Municipal Government Collection representing specific city agencies, departments, boards and commissions, and in the "Recently Processed" section of NUTRIAS.

A few of the photographs date from Schiro's terms as Councilman-at-Large.

The prints were scanned as grayscale or color images at 400 dpi and saved as 2000 pixel TIFFs using Photoshop 4.0 and 5.02 or Paint Shop Pro 6.01. The TIFFs are being retained as archival masters. Photoshop and Paint Shop Pro were also used to produce edited 600 pixel JPEGs and the 150 pixel JPEG thumbnails displayed on the pages listed below.

Additional collections of Schiro photographs can be found at Tulane University in the Manuscripts Department.
