This is a work in progress to compile as comprehensive as possible a listing numbers and titles of individual stereographs of Arizona from the Powell Expeditions.If you have examples that are not on this list, or valiant titles for any of the numbers or captions I would appreciate hearing from you. Ideally I would like to obtain either a xerox copy or scan for my files as well. Thanks in advance for your time and assistance.

Please feel free to use this information but please credit this source and reproduce only with full credit information.

Thank you.
