Hugh Mangum Photographs, 1890s-1922
The Archive of Documentary Arts (ADA) in the David M. Rubenstein Rare Book and Manuscript Library collects, preserves, and makes accessible photography and moving image materials from around the world related to human rights, social change, occupational culture, migration, race and ethnicity, gender, the American South, and African-American history and culture.
Collection formats cover the history of photography from daguerreotypes to contemporary digital prints, small gauge motion picture film to 35mm film, video, and digital moving image formats, ¼” reel to reel audio to mp3 files.
The ADA works closely with Duke’s Center for Documentary Studies and the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival. Since April 2007 the Archive of Documentary Arts has partnered with the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival to acquire, archive, and preserve copies of the festival’s award-winning films. The Archive of Documentary Arts has been collecting work generated by the Center for Documentary Studies for almost thirty years.
