Description/Abstract: The lantern slides in the box hidden away in the archives of the Gottesman Libraries at Teachers College, Columbia University are trying desperately to decide where they came from and what purpose they serve. Are they indeed an artifact of the W.P.A.? Their labels would assume so, but they still have questions.
