Photograph collection contains albumen and silver gelatin prints by several photographers located primarily in North Central Texas at the turn of the century up to 1945.

Organization

The collection is divided into two series: Identified Photographs and Unidentified Photographs. Under the Identified Photographs the series is further subdivided into Names/Places and Photographers. The Names/Places subseries is arranged in alphabetical order with last name first, if given, and according to place name (town name). The photographs of individuals identified with just first names only are located at the end of this section. The Photographer subseries is arranged alphabetically by name of photographer and includes location, if known. The Unidentified series is subdivided into two subseries: Individual Portraits and Group Photographs. The Individual Portraits are further divided into: Male and Female categories. The Group Photographs are in a random order since there was no previous arrangement and no further information was in the collection to adequately arrange them.

Administrative Information

Provenance

The Russell Torti Photograph Collection was donated in April of 1987 by Russell Torti of Fort Worth, Texas. The photograph collection was given to Russell Torti by his father, Charles Torti, who was a Mason and a close friend of a Mr. William Smith, who was also a Mason. Mr. Smith had lived in Arlington, Texas, and is believed to have died sometime between 1977 and 1987.

The photograph collection originally came from Mr. Smith and is most likely of his family, his in-laws, and their extended family and friends. It is also likely that Mr. Smith is the "Will Smith," who is identified twice in the collection, and he is also most likely related to an "R. L. Smith" (1887-1975) of Fort Worth, who is also identified twice in the collection.

The collection was received by Dr. Gerald Saxon, Assistant Director for Special Collections for The University of Texas at Arlington Libraries.
