The CMHI Historic Photo Board Digitization Project

We are currently entering the Corpus of Maya Hieroglyphic Inscriptions photo board collection into the Peabody Museum's online database for greater research access. The historic boards, now over 10,000, were begun in the Carnegie Institution of Washington era by Tatiana Proskouriakoff and other scholars, with many additions by Ian Graham (former CMHI Director, 1968–2004). This process includes identifying and cross-linking any extant digital records of the images on the photo cards in the Museum’s database.
