Historical Sketch

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.


Scope and Content

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 negatives from many of the early pictures.


Arrangement

This collection is arranged in three series: negatives, photographs, and framed.

Series I: Photographs. The photographs are categorized by content/location on site, then by size with some grouped in oversized boxes.

Series II: Framed. This series is comprised of pieces that have been framed for various reasons.

**Please note that within this collection, there are elements located within the Digital Archives.
