Collection Statement

Collection consists of black and white photographs and color slides of both classes that Professor Gass taught as well as as the many Winter Term in Mission trips that he was a part of. These photographs include many of his students. Also included are slides of Gobin Memorial United Methodist Church, Greencastle. Most of the slides were made with Kodachrome film, so the color has remained very stable. All but one of the slide sets (Jamaica) include written lists of captions, housed in the box with the slides.
