Smithsonian: Science Service Historical Image Collection, 1926-1976

This collection of images with their original captions from Science Service -- a leading institution for the popularization of science through magazines, bulletins, and newswires for 50 years -- gives users insight into the presentation and status of scientific research from the rise of electrical technology through the modern nuclear age. The collection includes hundreds of images that can be searched or browsed, as well as over 130 subject headings for quick access. The site also provides links to a Master's Thesis and an essay on Science Service, exploring its role in the formulation of popular images of science. Besides being of use to the curious, this site is likely to be valuable to cultural historians and historians of science.
