This digital collection, funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services, includes more than 3000 photographs of the activities of and related to the American Missionary Association from the late nineteenth century through the mid twentieth century.
Archive includes photographs of Lincoln Academy school buildings, students, and teachers.
"Photographers working with the American Missionary Association traveled through urban and rural communities within the continental United States of America, as well as across oceans to other lands, and visually recorded the foreign environments and people who lived within them. The photographs document the experiences and lives of various ethnic groups of the world. They provide visual support to the textual documents of the American Missionary Association archives, housed at the Amistad Research Center." https://louisianadigitallibrary.org
