The 
Daguerreian Society


I am pleased to announce a new web site that you won't want to miss: "The 
Social Construction of the American Daguerreotype Portrait," a senior 
thesis by Ben Mattison. I contacted Ben a few weeks ago; he mentioned that 
he was going to make the paper available on the web, but Ben outdid himself 
and made a very nice web version of his paper. Be sure to stop by and (if 
you enjoy it...pretty much a given) don't forget to drop him a note. The 
URL is:
