The Index to the Metropolitan Photographer Collection indexes 9,118 photo negatives that depict Nashville buildings, streets, people and events. The index will describe the photo and give the date, if known, and the dimensions of the photograph. Also known as City Photographer Index.
The Nashville Banner Clippings consists of biographical and subject clipping files, with the bulk of the collection dating from the 1950s to the early 1990s. Biographical files on several thousand persons constitute almost half of the collection, with the rest in subject files sorted into three main series: Nashville, Davidson County, and Tennessee. Results that are part of this collection will be labeled "Banner" and will include a record number which will help staff retrieve the files.
