Dexter Press Inc. founder Thomas A. Dexter began printing postcards in 1934 in New York and New Jersey. The collection, donated by Tommie Dexter Reardon, daughter of the founder of the company, includes job printing files; black and white, linen finish, and chrome postcards; and a box of black and white photographs used to make the black and white postcards. A later addition includes photographs and negatives, postcard samples, framed photographs, 3-D postcards, and other assorted postcards. Rounding out the collection are photographs of the interior and exterior of the Dexter Press offices, and a scrapbook with articles, photographs, and brochures from the 1920s to the 1990s.
