The Mac Suzuki Photograph Collection, MS 196, contains 838 color slides of 35 mm film taken by Mac Suzuki, MD. Most of the images were taken in Japan between 1948 and 1952 while Dr. Suzuki’s worked with the Atomic Bomb Casualty Commission. This material was donated by the children of Dr. Suzuki. The images are good condition although there is some evidence of vinegar syndrome. Most of the slides are Kodachrome with rich color and very sharp images depicting rural, tourist and work related scenes. A few slides are an off-brand of film, which account for the vinegar syndrome. See more at MS 196.


The Suzuki-Moore family requested that all slides be scanned and a copy of the scans given to the family. Digital copies of collection were delivered to the family. The Suzuki-Moore family (Sara, Megan, Daniel, and Katherine (Suzuki) Moore) officially donated this material on May 21, 2015.
