From 2019 to 2022, news correspondent and photography collector George Stephanopoulos gifted approximately 2,000 photographs to the Hobart and William Smith Colleges’ art collection. The donations consist largely of press prints that document important historical moments of the 20th century, including the Vietnam and Korean Wars, Presidential election campaigns, and the Civil Rights movement. Many historically significant figures are represented, such as Angela Davis, President John F. Kennedy, and Queen Elizabeth II. Through the inclusion of caption information, crop marks, and verso stamps, the photographs in Frames of History illustrate the processes of photographers, photo editors, and journalists in their roles at media outlets and demonstrate the importance of images in the circulation of news.
Frames of History includes a selection of photographs from the collection that are on view for the first time since their acquisition.
