A. G. Lucier Collection

The A. G. Lucier Collection is a large collection of photographs that date from (roughly) 1908 up to the mid-1950s. All photographs were the images shot and developed by Albert G. Lucier. Lucier worked in and outside of the Big Horn Basin and he owned a studio in the downtown Powell, Wyoming area. Part of the A.G Lucier collection was purchased by Northwest College in 1983. Within this purchased collection, is a large collection of glass negatives that document the National Park to Park Highway Inaugural Tour of 1920, of which Lucier was the hired photographer. This collection, while substantial, is not the complete Lucier Park to Park photographic collection. Other photos were acquired by other entities. Albert G. Lucier died in January, 1962. See A. G. Lucier’s biography
