Acquisition Information

After his retirement in 1956, Stone presented his entire photographic collection to the Science Department at San Jose State University, which soon dispersed the material. The portion of the Stone's collection currently held by the Getty Research Institute was deaccessioned by San Jose State in the 1960s and given to Luraine Tansey, a former student of Stone's and at that time, the university's Art and Slide Librarian. In 1987, Tansey gave the collection to the Photo Archive at the Getty.

Processing History

In 1991-1992, the Getty Research Institute created a set of copy negatives and a set of contact prints from Stone's original nitrate negatives. All notes from Stone's negative sleeves were transcribed into the Photo Archive database, ANTNEGS. In 2014, Cassandra D'Cruz, under the supervision of Ann Harrison, conducted research on the collection, collated the information in the ANTNEGS database with the contact prints and created the inventory.
