Abstract:

Comprised of over 500,000 images, the Bob Bailey Studios Photographic Archive provides a rich pictorial history of life in Houston from the 1930s through the 1990s. The Bailey brothers' archive features a remarkable variety of people and events, including visits by touring movie stars and campaigning presidents, aerial views of the burgeoning Houston skyline, byproducts of the petroleum industry such as drilling rigs, oil tankers, and gas stations, large gatherings of crowds for parades on Main Street, and the interiors and exteriors of early movie palaces. Particularly noteworthy portions of the archive include images depicting life in Houston during World War II and coverage of local news events such as the Texas City disaster and Howard Hughes' 1939 visit to Houston. The archive is comprised of a variety of photographic formats, including color and black and white negative film, motion picture film, mounted and unmounted prints, video, and compact discs. The size of materials in the archive also varies; 8 in X 10 in negatives form the bulk of the archive's earliest materials, while later materials consist primarily of 4 in X 5 in, 120 mm, and 35 mm negatives. In addition to photographic material, the archive also includes ledgers listing the contents of the archive and a small amount of printed material.
