Students who work in Special Collections are extremely important to the work we do — sine qua non, you might say. They help us in a myriad of ways; one of them is the conservation of Haverford’s historical photographs. This year, Kaitlin Franks, a sophomore, is working on this project. We were discussing the placement in the collection of a positive print from the 1950s depicting a person by the skating shed at the Duck Pond, apparently talking to visitors. On the back was the familiar stamp of the well-known photographer O. Winston Link who was on Haverford’s campus in the 1950s, taking a number of pictures. Later, when Kaitlin started working on a group of negatives, she found the same image and many more and quickly realized the connection. It was a treasure trove of OWL images.
