Collections at Other Institutions (Selected List)

Listed alphabetically by country or state, then by city or county, etc. Most are vertical aerial satellite images, but a few oblique or selective collections are here because of their usefulness.


The Fairchild Aerial Photography Collection at Whittier College is one of the largest libraries of aerial photographs in North America. The Collection is estimated to consist of at least 500,000 items, including prints, negatives, photoindices, and photomosaics. All of the photographs in the Collection were produced by Fairchild Aerial Surveys, Inc., or its subsidiaries and contractors during the period of 1927-1965, and are mostly black-and-white, vertical images.
