Exhibit Features Smoky Mountains Photographs

Trailblazers: Jim Thompson and Albert “Dutch” Roth Photographs of the Early Years of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park on exhibit at the Ewing Gallery through August 28

Images of the Appalachian Trail, the Smoky Mountains Hiking Club, moonshiners, logging, road building, and the majesty and beauty of the Smoky Mountains are featured in this photographic exhibit at the Ewing Gallery, which runs from June 17 through August 28, 2005.

Amateur photographers Jim Thompson and Albert “Dutch” Roth were among the first to photograph the area that would become the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Thanks to the efforts of the University of Tennessee Libraries, their photographs have been preserved and digitized as part of a project through UT’s Digital Library Center.
