Collection Overview

Scope and Content
Robert A. Campbell, Jr., was a son of Robert Alexander Campbell, superintendent of Cave Hill Cemetery in Louisville. He was an engineer and apparently moved away from Louisville about 1914. The collection contains glass plate and film negatives taken by Campbell. There are scenes of Louisville's Cave Hill Cemetery, Cherokee Park, and Shippingport Island. Photos include scenes in Louisville during the 1913 flood and at an aviation show in 1910. Most of the plates and negatives have not been printed
