Description

This archive at the University of Frankfurt [Germany] contains ephemera of the members of the German Colonial Society (Deutsche Kolonialgesellschaft), founded in 1877. Its members collected books, journals, and photographs of their activities and of the interests of Germans around the world, from its beginning until its dissolution in 1943. The 50,000 digitized slides, photographs, and book illustrations from the archive mostly document late 19th and early 20th-century Africa. The bulk of the images pertain to these countries (in ranked order of number of images present in the database): Togo, Cameroon, Namibia, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi, China, Papua New Guinea, Palau, Federated States of Micronesia, USA and Canada, Marshall Islands, Nauru, Samoa. The images in the photo archive may be searched by Place, Subject, Person, Photographer, and/or Ethnic Group. The website also includes the three-volume [in German] German Colonial Dictionary (Heinrich Schnee, ed. Deutsches Kolonial-Lexikon. Leipzig: Quelle & Meyer 1920). The website is in German, but the search page for the image archive has an alternative English-language interface.
