The American Folklife Center (AFC) at the Library of Congress has purchased the original photographic materials made for “Honest Horses: Wild Horses of the Great Basin,” an NAC traveling exhibition and a book of the same name (University of Nevada Press, 2006) from photographer Paula Morin. As a part of this agreement, the Nevada Folklife Archives transferred the oral history materials gathered during the fieldwork for the project to the AFC to complete and support this important collection on the status of wild horses in the American West. 

Materials include approximately 1,300 black and white film negatives and contact sheets, and 72 tape-recorded oral history interviews and transcripts gathered during the project. The collection will include up to 25 archival giclée prints made from Morin’s hand painted black & white photographs. The collection is currently being preserved and cataloged so it may be available to researchers and members of the public.  Folklife Program Coordinator Pat Atkinson, who serves on the Board of Trustees for the American Folklife Center, facilitated the acquisition of this collection.
