Cushman's Photographic Equipment

View images of Cushman's Photographic Equipment

In June of 1989, Elizabeth Cushman sent Charles' camera equipment, including the Contax II A camera it is believed was used to take most of the pictures in this collection, to the Indiana University Foundation. From there the equipment was sent to the Indiana University School of Journalism where it was used in an exhibit of antique camera equipment. The equipment was permanently transferred to the Indiana University Archives on Nov. 18, 1999. At the time of the camera equipment's arrival at the Indiana University Foundation, Elizabeth wrote that the appraiser "...was very impressed with the Contax II A camera. He said it is a museum piece, and asked if he could take it on consignment for there is a collectors market for it."
