Hine (1874-1940) came to the Library primarily in two ways. Romana Javitz, head of the Library's Picture Collection, began to solicit gifts and buy prints from Hine himself shortly after he exhibited his photographs of the Empire State Building in 1931. Then, in 1949, the Russell Sage Foundation transferred to the Library a series of prints it had commissioned from Hine for its library. The foundation had asked Hine in his final years to create a systematic, definitive collection of his life work. All of these photographs were transferred in the late 1980s to the Photography Collection of the Miriam and Ira D. Background Growing up in the populist tradition of his native Wisconsin, Hine was no stranger to hard work or family tragedy. Hine was drawn to Ellis Island and the "new immigration," a contemporary term for the waves of newcomers arriving from southern and eastern Europe and elsewhere.
