Throwback Thursday: Studying in the Library

It’s another #ThrowbackThursday from Nebraska Memories!

We’re celebrating #SchoolLibraryMonth by featuring some of the school libraries you can find on the Nebraska Memories archive! This week, we have an 8″ x 10″ black and white acetate negative of students studying in the library of Windsor School, located in Omaha, Nebraska.

This image was taken by William Wentworth in 1937. It is published and owned by The Durham Museum. The William Wentworth Collection features 4663 images that document life in Omaha, Nebraska from 1934 to 1950. He worked as a freelance and commercial photographer, providing a unique view of architecture, businesses, and community life in the city.

Check out the full William Wentworth Collection on the Nebraska Memories archive.

Nebraska Memories is a cooperative project to digitize Nebraska-related historical and cultural heritage materials and make them available to researchers of all ages via the Internet. The Nebraska Memories archive is brought to you by the Nebraska Library Commission. If your institution is interested in participating in Nebraska Memories, see for more information.
