Scope and Content Note

This series consists of instructional glass lantern slides that appear to have been separated from the master set in Series A3045 for unknown reasons. Unlike the master set, these lantern slides contain no classification scheme or numbering. They appear to have been loosely grouped together in sets according to subject matter. Almost all sets pertain to New York State. While there is no clear identification of subjects, sets appear to include Albany schools and hospitals, laboratories, pathology and immunization, blister rust, vocational schools, general education and schools, and the Associated Academic Principals of the State of New York. Some slides appear to duplicate ones in the master set, but many do not.
