In more than 60 years as an active photographer, Michael W. Lemberger took thousands of photographs. He also assembled a collection of historic photos dating from glass negatives from the 1890s to the current day.
The Lemberger Collection includes images of important figures and everyday people.
Mr. Lemberger’s family has donated The Lemberger Collection to the University of Iowa Libraries, Special Collections department, where it will be archived, catalogued, digitized, and made available to the public under a Creative Commons copyright license.
