Located at the University of Wyoming, the American Heritage Center (AHC) is the institution's repository of manuscripts collections, rare books, and the university archives. Within their impressive archive is the Ludwig-Svenson Studio Collection, which brings together over 3000 original photographs from the 20th century. First-time visitors can browse through the collection by date or subject, and the collection is particularly strong in images from the city of Laramie. The collection is also strong in terms of its coverage of rodeos, street scenes, and local theater events. Visitors should not miss the photo "Al Wilkenson Leaving Torpedo," which is quite outstanding. The photos can be viewed by clicking on the thumbnails, and it's easy to share the photos with friends by clicking the "Share This" link.
