The National Archives hosts an online collection of 226 Ansel Adams photographs of National Parks. These photographs were originally intended to comprise a mural for the U.S. Department of the Interior, but this planned project was discontinued when the U.S. entered World War II. While most of the photographs in this online collection were intended for that project, the collection also includes a few additional photographs that Adams took during the establishment of Kings Canyon National Park in 1936 and one older photo of Yosemite National Park. Collections have been organized by National Park Site and are listed alphabetically. While most of the pictures depict nature, the collection also includes a few portraits of Navajo individuals at the Canyon de Chelly.
