Sheet music, motion pictures, photographs, posters, newspapers, books, pamphlets, and other materials may also be found throughout the Library's General Collections and in its other custodial divisions.
The Prints and Photographs Division holds a small collection of Visual Materials from the Records of the National Woman's Party. It consists of about 450 posters, postcards, printing plates, and photographs (primarily portraits), which were transferred from the Manuscript Division in 1986. A finding aid for this collection is available online from the Prints and Photographs Division. Digitized images of selected items may be found in the Prints and Photographs Online Catalog by searching on the call number or title. Additional images relating to the NWP sometimes appear in other Prints and Photographs Division collections, especially in the photo archives of news agencies and photographers, such as those of the National Photo Company, George Grantham Bain, and Harris & Ewing.
