PHS holds a vast collection of Religious News Service photographs: 60,000 images depicting domestic and international religious news between 1945 and 1982. Through a digitization pilot project we are adding almost 500 RNS images to Pearl, the Society’s publicly accessible digital archives, and planning for the future digitization of this evocative ecumenical collection.
