With help from undergraduate intern, Blair Abraham, over 200 slides from the Smith Collection were digitized this semester. Arthur Smith was a professor in Chatham’s history department from 1963-1993 and author of the popular local history title, Pittsburgh Then and Now, first published in 1990. Many of the more modern images available in the Archives Flickr collection were photographed by Smith himself. Subjects include major Pittsburgh skyscrapers, campus buildings and landscapes, and other examples of local architecture.
