McCullagh Photo Archive


The McCullagh Photo Archive documents the travels of Paul F. McCullagh to the worlds of ancient Greece and Persia in the years between 1964 and 1976. Professor McCullagh, who taught Classics at McGill from 1926 to 1988, was a passionate traveller to Classic sites as well as destinations that lay far off the beaten track. Captured on Kodak film, his photographs reveal intriguing views of monuments and sites that were later altered by the impact of tourism, environmental change, urban development, and warfare. 

Pauline McCullagh donated the collection to Classical Studies at McGill in 2011. The slides were subsequently cleaned, scanned and prepared for usage in the public domain. Image downloads are free.
