Collecting photographs has been a Haverford tradition since 1870. Today, a Class One circulating photographic research library augments a 5,000-print photography collection representing more than 500 photographers spanning the medium's history. The College's Special Collections also contains related materials consisting of manuscripts, letters and first editions by prominent figures in the history of photography, such as Daguerre, Talbot, Alfred Stieglitz, Francis Frith and Maxfield Parrish (Haverford Class of 1892).
Since 1995, Michael Fogel, Haverford Class of 1958, and his son, Rafael Fogel, Class of 1992, have been providing funds for the acquisition of fine art photographs to add to the College's collection. The result of this sustained giving is a group of 49 works by 38 photographers spanning the history of the medium from its maturation in the 19th century to the present day. When seen together, these purchases constitute a collection within a collection that mirrors a wide range of photographic genres from travel, to portraiture, to conceptual and post-modern work.
The Fogel funds have been used to acquire works that have enriched Haverford's encyclopedic collection by allowing it to grow in new directions and to augment its considerable core strengths.
