Content DescriptionReturn to Top
The photographs in this collection deal primarily with Weeks' travels to the Southwest United States. Originally from Iowa, he visited Zion Canyon for health reasons in 1901. He took some of the earliest photographs of the region and returned often to southern Utah in the subsequent years. He became an advocate of a national park system for Utah and took an active role in fighting the building of Echo Park Dam. Collection includes family pictures, geological/environmental interest, and also deals with the natives who lived in the southwest. Also includes images of mountain scenery, Yellowstone National Park, Zion National Park, and a trip to Europe. Almost all of the images in this collection have matching negatives; some are the original glass plate negatives and some are later copies.
