The Amon Carter Museum of American Art in Fort Worth, Texas, has digitized and catalogued more than 35,000 artworks by eight prominent American photographers — Carlotta Corpron (1901–1988), Nell Dorr (1893–1988), Laura Gilpin (1891–1979), Eliot Porter (1901–1990), Helen Post (1907–1979), Clara Sipprell (1885–1975), Erwin E. Smith (1886–1947) and Karl Struss (1886–1981) – and put the works online. The project was made possible by a $75,000 digitization grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities in 2012.
