Scope and content
The photographs in this series document the life of Professor Gordon Skilling and members of his family over most of the 20th century. Included are images to Eastern Europe and specifically Czechoslovakia taken during Skilling's trips over six decades. These are mainly contained in albums and show many of Skilling's colleagues in Eastern Europe, including Vilem Precan and Vaclav Havel, along with many organized meetings and events.
Notebooks with entries about lists of slides taken on trips to England and Europe between 1961 and 1973 are filed in /050(23).
Researchers may wish to look at these albums in conjunction with the journals in series 5 and 7 in Sous-fonds 3.

Some of the large photo albums were dismantled, from which only a selection of photographs were kept and boxed separately in boxes /006P and /007P. In such cases, the selected pages were photocopied and annotated with a number that relates to the removed originals. These photocopied albums are interfiled chronologically with the albums that were retained in their entirety.
