Arrangement note

The photographs are foldered in sets and organized primarily with preservation in mind, with the more commonly used (Pullman/Whitman regions) above the less often used. Pullman-region images are first, listed chronologically, then Whitman County, again chronologically, followed by the remaining two folders, with the more fragile Columbia River photographs located beneath the others.
