Harry Philip Fischer (1879-1949) was born in Marietta and spent his early career working in his father’s shoe store. He opened a photography studio in 1901, and made studio portraits, as well as images of local landscapes and events. The collection is particularly strong in steamboats, river scenes, floods, street scenes, local architecture, schools, businesses, and portraits. It contains about 14,000 glass plates and films of area scenes taken between 1901 and 1949.
