Mod City: The John Rogers and Georgette de Bruchard Collection Digital Exhibit
Now available, Mod City: The John Rogers and Georgette de Bruchard Collection digital exhibit. This exhibit was created by UNT Special Collections to showcase the massive John Rogers and Georgette de Bruchard Collection, which was acquired in 2016. The work of these two professional photographers captured the mid-century culture and expansion of Dallas, making it one of the most significant archives of regional architectural and documentary photography centered on Dallas.
Items in the Collection are from 1945 to 1991, but many of the highlights come from the 1950s through 1970s, such as the amazing architectural photography, celebrities and politicians visiting Dallas like Maria Callas and Richard Nixon, and the luxury fashions of Neiman-Marcus.
The Mod City digital exhibit will be available in perpetuity, and will be updated and added to as we continue to digitize the collection. For more information about the collection contents, visit the Finding Aid, and view more digitized materials from the collection on the Portal to Texas History.
