Mildred Eckert Barrett photographs

Scope and Contents

This collection is a mix of photographs collected before the establishment of the Rio Grande Historical Society or the Archives and Special Collections department at New Mexico State University. The subjects vary - the oversize pictures all focus on the college or the campus grounds, but there are pictures of Dona Ana and Tortugas and White Sands. There are also stereo cards, which include a picture of the Empire State Building in New York.


  • 1890-1959
