GB 0231 MS 3792/A1745, The Mitchell Tower, Marischal CollegeThe George Washington Wilson and Co. photographic collection consists of over 37,000 glass plate negatives. An ongoing project is the creation of enhanced descriptions of the photographs. A cataloguer was appointed in 2006 on a year-long project and another cataloguer continued the task again in 2010–2011. The latest work has also been to improve the catalogues of other related collections including papers relating to the University’s administration of the collection, the research papers of Wilson’s biographer Roger Taylor and a collection of the company’s commercial products.
