Allen and Irvin Peithman; a large number of the former Murphysboro American Newspaper's photographs; and a collection of 150 postcards (available for purchase in the JCHS Store) containing scenes throughout Jackson County.  A large number of uncatalogued photographs remain in storage (volunteers are needed to catalogue these).
