The Ace Alagna photographic collection, 1944-1998 details 20th century American politics, and Italian-American life through the images of photographer Ace Alagna. Alagna was a White House Press Corps photographer and editor at The Italian Tribune for almost 30 years.
A large part of the collection documents national and local New Jersey politicians from the 1940s through the 1990s. Also included are images of singers, actors, and entertainers, many of them Italian-American, from the mid to late-20th century. Images of the Columbus Day Parade in Newark, NJ, sponsored by The Italian Tribune, also comprise a large part of the collection, and local schools, organizations, Roman Catholic parishes and local life are also well represented.
The images found in this digital collection represent only a small portion of the entire collection. Please view the finding aid for the Ace Alagna photographic collection, 1944-1998, Mss 0018 for more information.
