The Humphrey Winterton Collection of East African Photographs: 1860-1960

Northwestern University’s collection of East African photos purchased from the British collector Humphrey Winterton has been digitized to allow greater access to scholars, educators, students, and the interested public. The Winterton Collection includes over 7,000 photographs, which depict life, primarily in East Africa, between about 1860 and 1960. Visitors should click on the “Collection” section of the homepage to browse or search the online collection.  The collection can be searched by “People”, “Places” and “Decades”, as well as by “Keywords” and Subjects”; “Collection Browser” gives an alphabetical list of all the images in the collection. The “Winterton in the Classroom” section, accessible on the homepage, provides a very useful tool for K-12 teachers.  Some of the topics to view are “East African Timeline”, “Cultural Context of African Colonial Photographs”, and “Links to K-12 Support in Teaching About Africa”. In the near future, lesson plans will also be available on the site. Please click here to access.
