About this collection

From 1946-1956, the celebrated photographer Carl Van Vechten mailed thousands of portrait postcards to his friend, Karl Priebe, a Wisconsin artist whose personal papers reside in Marquette University's Department of Special Collections & Archives.

Marquette is pleased to publish these postcards depicting hundreds of notable individuals from the first half of the twentieth century. Photographed by Van Vechten between 1932 and 1956, the portraits constitute a veritable "who's who" of prominent persons in the twentieth century arts.
