Scope and Content

This collection is comprised of a 1930s set of intaglio prints and a photocopy of Karl and Wilma Belser's 1938 Christmas card that was drawn by Belser. Most of the prints are signed and dated dry point and etchings by a library staff member, however there is a strong possibility that they maybe engravings. The print themes are European architecture and bust portraits. One print is on a piece of paper that has a cutoff watermark, Michall France.

Arrangement

Materials in this collection are arranged in chronological order. Undated materials are at the beginning.
