Vertical Files

 

Introduction to the Vertical Files

 

The Montana Historical Society Research Center has two reference rooms, one where you access and view materials from the Archives and Library collections and the other where you access and view materials from the Photograph Archives collection. The Library/Archives reference room has over 195 linear feet of vertical files organized under alphabetically arranged categories: Biographical and Topical. The Photograph Archives reference room has Photographer Files that contain information about Montana photographers and photographic studios arranged alphabetically by the name of the photographer or the studio. The vertical and photographer files are used by researchers at every level of interest and academics and have been maintained for decades. They represent a very traditional form of information collection and maintenance, but also offer an invaluable and irreplaceable source of Montana History for researchers.
