Scope and Contents
Robert Yellin's fieldwork photographs document folk musicians and artisans. Yellin accompanied Ralph Rinzler on a number of fieldwork trips and provided the photographic record. The collection dates from 1964 to 1966. Photographic materials include 69 rolls of negatives, contact sheets made from the negatives, and 54 prints and features photographs of Doc Watson, Clarence Ashley, Clint Howard and Fred Price.
Each roll of negatives and their corresponding contact sheets in the Robert Yellin photographs has been assigned an accession number, and like materials have been put together. Each photographic print was given an accession number in numerical order based on the series number. Materials are arranged chronologically.
