The Frank J. Dahlhaus collection consists of 35 mounted items - 33 Time magazine covers, all but one autographed; 1 introductory statement and 1 closing statement, also mounted. This unique collection was organized by Mr. Dahlhaus to document the effects of technological changes in society as reflected in the periodical press. The collection includes 33 folders of printed background information for each of the magazine covers, as well as a clipping of the corresponding feature article. Also included are copies of Mr. Dahlhaus' letters to the subjects (or their agents) of the articles requesting the honor of their autographs on the magazine covers. The last 2 folders of Box 2 contain some caption cards that accompanied the exhibition, and color slides of each of the mounted exhibit items.
