Re: “John Rogers owns more photos than anyone, anywhere

When the offices of The Sporting News were located in St. Louis, the glass plate negatives and acetate negatives taken by Charles Conlon--some 8000 images in all--were taken care of according to the highest archival standards. The negatives had been cleaned, and they were being stored in acid-neutral sleeves and boxes. Moreover, there was a catalog listing each image in many particulars. Furthermore, TSN had stopped making prints directly from the glass plates, for obvious reasons. The company had paid for a complete run of inter-positives and reproduction duplicates from which new prints were being made. That the Conlons were buried in a warehouse once the company moved to Charlotte speaks not very highly about how the current ownership cared for its resources. It's a great pity.
