The provenance and original order of the photographic images comprising the CNE Archives Photograph Collection, C 1, are unknown. In order to make these images accessible to researchers, the CNE Archives imposed a logical arrangement at the file and series level. This project was undertaken during the period July 1994 to October 1994.
No documentation is available regarding the time or circumstances of the acquisition of the photographs from their donors to the CNE Archives, the transfer of legal custody to the Archives or the acceptance of the material by the Archives.

The CNE Archives Photograph Collection, C 1, consists of approximately 4.5 m of photographic records, or 15,049 photographic images. The provenance and original order of the photographic images comprising this collection are unknown.

The second series, Negative Subject Files, C 1-0-2, consists of approximately 3,240 negatives also organized in files and arranged alphabetically by subject.

Series C 1-0-4, CNE Photo Contest, consists of six albums containing a total of approximately 2,021 photographic images, and 291 loose prints in file folders.
