The extensive archive of American photojournalist David Douglas Duncan (1916-2018) is an ongoing acquisition, first acquired in 1996. A finding aid for materials received through 2007 is available in hard copy in the Ransom Center's reading room.

The collection consists of photographic prints (approximately 36,800), negatives (approximately 87,200), transparencies (approximately 21,900), field notebooks, legal files and financial documents, clippings, tear sheets and rotogravure pages, handwritten and typed manuscripts, book dummies, reproduction proofs, exhibition brochures and posters, albums and scrapbooks, military records, awards, and magazines all documenting the life and career of American photojournalist David Douglas Duncan.

In addition to the photographic and manuscript materials, the Center also received: cameras and pieces of photographic equipment; works of art, including several drawings by Pablo Picasso; personal effects ranging from clothing to typewriters; books from his personal library; sound records from the field and radio appearances; and a handful of video tapes.

Access Restrictions:

Open for research. Transparencies are in cold storage and must be requested at least two days in advance of anticipated use.
