This Erwin E. Smith Collection Guide was designed and developed by the Amon Carter Museum. The online collection was made possible through the generosity of the Erwin E. Smith Foundation. The project is ultimately indebted to the groundbreaking research by Byron Price for the publication and exhibition, Imagining the Open Range: Erwin E. Smith, Cowboy Photographer (1998) and to Kris Westerson, who wrote the teachers' guide for that exhibition.

Barbara McCandless and Barbara Maldonado compiled the text for this project. Karen Chase designed and authored the online teaching guide. Lisa Thornton digitized and selected the images; with the help of Geoffrey Dare, she assembled the title information. The guide has been designed and implemented with the assistance of Amon Carter Museum staff members Libby Cluett, Lori Eklund, Will Gillham, Christine Hull, and Steven Watson. Freelance editor Peter Keefe helped polish the work. Special thanks to Macromedia, Inc. for the donation of software used to create this website.
