    I believe that there was, some time ago, a collection of photos belonging to the Merserve Collection. If so does anyone know what happened to that collection?

    In April of 2015 Yale University purchased this for an "undisclosed amount". It consisted of 57,000 photographic prints.

    I thought a part of it was put online but could not find any except for a few Lincoln photos.
