Born and raised in Brockton, Massachusetts, photographer Stanley Bauman (1913-2007) spent his entire life capturing photos that document the history of Brockton and Southeastern Massachusetts. In 1998, after receiving the President's medal at Stonehill College's annual President's Dinner, Mr. Bauman announced he would leave his entire life's work to the college after his death. After his death in 2007, the collection, which includes over 500,000 negatives from the 1930s-2003 along with numerous prints, slides, scrapbooks and artifacts, was moved the five miles from Mr. Bauman's home in Brockton to its new home at Stonehill.
The Stonehill College Archives and Historical Collections’ staff is currently working on a long-term project to process the collection that will ensure its preservation and researcher access.
This process involves:
- cleaning the collection,
- assessing negatives for damage and preservation concerns,
- placing negatives into archival enclosures and boxes,
- creating electronic finding aids to the collection using Bauman's handwritten and typed paper indexes.
During this process, the collection is open on a limited basis. To date over 25,000 envelopes containing over 100,000 negatives have been processed and indexed. If you would like to request a photograph or want more for information about the collection please contact the Director of Archives and Historical Collections, Nicole Casper at email@example.com or visit our Bauman Reference Page.
