Photographer Stephen Barth ’78 Donates Collection

Some of Stephen’s most recognizable work appeared on the cover of the book, George School: The History of a Quaker Community, published in 1992 in celebration of the one-hundredth anniversary of the school.

Stephen Barth ’78 recently donated his collection of George School photographs to the school. His portfolio represents two decades of work—the 1980s and 1990s—and covers both the campus and school events.

Some of his most recognizable work appeared on the cover of the book, George School: The History of a Quaker Community, published in 1992 in celebration of the one-hundredth anniversary of the school. A photo of Main building and the sprawling green campus is showcased on the cover and a picture of Main lit up at night is on the back. The back cover photo is captioned “Mind the Light.”

Stephen helped organize the George School photography archive in support of the book, written by Kingdon Swayne ’37. In his dedication Kingdon wrote, “Stephen Barth ’78 helped us make sense of the school’s vast photo archive… [and] made it possible for us to find the very best and most appropriate photos for the book.”

Stephen also has donated original negatives to institutions such as the Michener Art Museum, Moravian College, and Solebury School. The collection is in the process of being cataloged by George School Archivist David Long.
