Jack Child Digital Slide Collection is complete

The final digitized image from Jack Child’s Slide Collection went online earlier this week. Jack Child maintained an extensive library of visual images that he regularly used in the classroom. The digital version of the slide collection focuses on the images taken by Child and his companions on his travels – approximately 50 percent of his library. Child visited every Latin American country at least once. He served as staff lecturer and guide aboard expedition cruise vessels to Antarctica and sub-Antarctic islands on fourteen trips. The strengths of the digital collection are as follows: Antarctica; Argentina; Colombia; Cuba; Falklands/Maldives; Mexico; Nicaragua; and Peru. All Latin American countries are represented in the digital collection. Of note are a selection of images from his two tours of duty in Vietnam.
