Scope Note

This relatively small group of photographs reflects mainly ceremonial aspects of Mayor Morrison's activities. The four Morrison inauguration ceremonies are among the better represented categories; a small group of snapshots illustrates the funeral of Mayor Morrison and thus extends the series beyond the Morrison administration. Many other photographs from the Morrison administration can be found among the photographs in the Municipal Government Collection representing specific city agencies, departments, boards and commissions.

The prints were scanned as grayscale images at 400 dpi and saved as 2000 pixel TIFFs using Photoshop 4.0. The TIFFs are being retained as archival masters. Photoshop was also used to produce edited 600 pixel JPEGs and the 200 pixel JPEG thumbnails displayed on the pages listed below.

Additional collections of Morrison photographs can be found at Tulane University in the Manuscripts Collection.


The prints are numbered and filed sequentially. The digital versions on these pages have been arranged in general subject categories. Click on the links below to view thumbnail images; each thumbnail links to a larger image.
