Save the Roman Kwasniewski Collection


Time, chemical instability, and the medium's own inherent fragility have caused the Roman Kwasniewski photographic collection's continuous deterioration to its current distressed state. In order to save these important images, the UWM Libraries is undertaking a project to scan the entire collection and post a selection of the best images on the Web.

This project will require resources beyond what the UWM Libraries has available. Private support is sought from individuals, foundations, and other funding sources to meet these goals.
