Construction on the Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility (CEBAF) in Newport News, Virginia began in February of 1987. Since then, staff and various Lab Offices have been documenting events happening here with photography. Some of these images have been used for public outreach, to help explain our mission, to document our history and progress, and to share with each other the experience of being a part of the Jefferson Lab culture and family.
This collection consists of images taken by various members of the CEBAF staff while construction was underway in various areas of the site, various events, and informational placards. There are also images from the first comprehensive site wide fire drill involving Newport New Fire/Rescue in 1991, aerials photographs of the linac, and many other events on-site.
This collection is incomplete to date and still undergoing processing. If the researcher is seeking photographs of specific events or people, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
There are many photographs still awaiting indexing/metadata on the Lab servers. These images are generally arranged by event and date.
The Jefferson Lab Digital Archive is located at: https://jlab.access.preservica.com/
The physical collection is arranged in two series.
Series I: Photographs. The photographs are categorized by content/location on site, then by size with some grouped in oversized boxes. This facet of the collection is sorted by a Photograph Indexing Key that was developed by Public Affairs in the late 1990s. The Indexing Key is incorporated into this Finding Aid to assist researchers in locating images.
Series II: Framed. This series is comprised of pieces that have been framed for various reasons.
