In 1963, the Indiana University Foundation was willed the 19,000 item photographic collection, work diary, correspondence, and newspaper articles of photographer and journalist Frank M. Hohenberger. He was famous for photographing and writing about Brown County, Indiana, and this work was an integral part of his Indianapolis Star column "Down in the Hills O' Brown County" and its accompanying photographs. The homepage of the collection has links to "Browse the Collection" and "Search the Collection", but also includes a link to the "Introduction to Frank M. Hohenberger's Indiana Photographs", a book edited by Cecil K. Byrd. When browsing the collection of images, visitors can choose from series' divided by size of photo, a location, or subject matter, such as "Birds, Animals" or "Winter". Visitors interested in going to Brown County to see how it has changed, or in some cases, stayed the same, should click on the "Brown County Convention and Visitors Bureau" link near the bottom of the homepage.
