Pictures from the Estate of R.K. Harrison

These photographs are scans of original photographs I received from the widow of R.K. Harrison. I believe they are the originals of the plates used in his out-of-print, The Dead Sea Scrolls: An Introduction (New York: Harper and Row, 1961). These pictures may be used with permission; any use must include clear acknowledgment of their source.
