The Forest History Society is an archive dedicated to collecting and preserving forest and conservation history. And what an incredible archive! I love the peek into a different time.

There are so many good photo archives on the internet these days — organized by libraries, cities and universities. Do you have any favorites?

Many libraries, archives and cultural institutions are digitizing their hidden collections and it is an exciting thing. Have you looked at the Library of Congress site, American Memory? It is amazing! They have old photographs, sound recordings and moving images. Check out the very first films made by Thomas Edison. http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/index.html

I have spent too many hours looking through the New York Public Library’s digital archive. Also, I used to work at Yale’s archive, the Beinecke Library, and they have an amazing array of things available online (including some very old pictures of Yellowstone National Park).
