The Agnes L. Adams collection consists of 148 35-millimeter transparencies mounted in 2-inch x 2-inch slides. The images, some color and some black-and-white, are photographs taken by Agnes Louise Adams (1897–1996) while in Korea as leader of the American Education Team in Taegu in 1954–1955. The photographs are largely of Adams’s friends and colleagues and general scenes. The photographs were given to the Center for Korean Studies by Adams in July 1976.
Agnes L. Adams’s personal papers are held in the National-Louis University Archives in Chicago.
