Method of Acquisition
The Ruth E. Thomas Photographs were presented to Charles Sherrod, president of State Teachers College, Johnson City, in 1941. Sherrod's son, Howell, transferred the photographs to Larry Smith, East Tennessee State University photographer in 1986. Smith transferred the photographs to the archives at a later date.
Processing of the collection was completed by M.Tedesco in 1992.
