Documentary Relations of the Southwest provides research tools and finding aids to the written record that began with the arrival of the Spanish explorers in the 1530’s. DRSW is an digital anthology of the documents on the 1,5000 microfilm reels of documents, many collected by the Jesuit Historical Institute, including the diaries of explorers and reports of missionaries and soldiers, dating from the 16th century to the Mexican declaration of independence from Spain in 1821.
Homer Shantz's photographs were digitized on behalf of the University of Arizona Herbarium (ARIZ) to preserve the deteriorating prints and negatives. Dr. Shantz was a leading American botanist, photographer, and former president of the University of Arizona. He made documentary photographs on his travels which included the American West and Africa. Also available is the Shantz African Expedition Exhibit, a selection of photographs from the 1919-1920 Smithsonian Expedition.
