The subject of this paper was basically decided for me by the nature of my internship at Henry Ford Museum. The Assistant Curator of Graphics had three main projects she hoped I would accomplish during the twelve weeks I was to be there. First, an inventory was required of all the paintings in the museum and Greenfield Village. Second, turn-of-the-century Detroit Publishing Company photographs had to be selected, identified, and verified for Dover Publications to use in a book entitled Main Street U.S.A. Third, the Museum's collection of daguerreotypes needed to be cataloged and arranged. I selected the latter project as the subject for my Senior Thesis because, in addition to the fact that I would be working with the daguerreotypes for almost every day of my internship, I believed that the photographs would be interesting.
