Peter E. Palmquist Memorial Fund for Historical
Photographic Research ANNUAL to semi-ANNUAL- call or write for info:

Peter E. Palmquist Grant for Historical Photographic Research - Palmquist Application

Preference is given to independent researchers. An independent researcher is someone who controls his or her own research projects, intellectually and financially. The person can be a freelancer or affiliated with a university or other institution, but can not be conducting research under the supervision or direction of another person or entity, either as a trainee, a post-doctoral fellow, or as a research assistant or associate. Doctoral candidates who are writing their dissertations and who are not receiving financial aid will also be considered. Individuals researching Western American photography before 1900 or women in photography as well as nonprofit institutions conducting research in these fields, are eligible to apply.

Please contact Heather Hostler, Program Officer, Humboldt Area Foundation, Eureka, CA for the application and with any questions. Humboldt Area Foundation, Eureka, CA: 707-442-2993, heatherh@hafoundation.org.

Women In Photography International Archive

A bibliography of books about and by women photographers, created in 2000 by Peter E. Palmquist (1936-2003), the late founder and curator of the Women In Photography International Archive now housed at the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library at Yale University

The publications in this collection have been gathered over a twenty-seven-year period. Every title listed has at least a perceived connection with one or more female photographers. Included are autobiographies, biographies, literary works, "how-to" and other technical writings, photojournalism, and fine art publications. A large number are monographs or exhibition catalogues. Some are scarce, and a considerable number of these publications have not been previously identified as works relative to women photographers. This is especially true of female travel writers who also produced the photographs which illustrate their books. All of the books on this list are shelved at the Women in Photography International Archive.

The books are organized alphabetically by photographer, and then chronologically by date of publication. Note that there are two broad divisions to this listing, as follows:

Palmquist 2001 list of photographers

I. Publications centered on single photographers

Books A-C
Books D-J
Books K-P
Books R-Z

II. "Collections" with multiple photographers


Citations should be considered tentative, inasmuch as this is not a critical bibliography and entries have not been edited to a uniform style. Diacritical elements are also not included. Annotations, such as page count, have been rounded off to the nearest signature size. The physical size of the book (vertical measurement), and location indicators are intended for collection management purposes only. In some instances articles have been included, either because they are especially significant or have already been bound as a book. Likewise, some books are actually bound research notes and exist only in this archive.

Eventually, it is hoped that this listing will be winnowed into a comprehensive bibliography of writings by and about women photographers, including books, articles, and other resources such as video tapes and website's.

Finally it should be clearly understood that this bibliography is merely a work in progress. The user should anticipate misspellings, typos, inconsistent and/or incomplete citations, and so on. It is also possible that a few male photographers have been listed in error.
