Overview and metadata sections
Kintner took photography very seriously as a discipline that should be applied to field work, and in the late 1960s and early 1970s he funded weekend seminars for University of Pennsylvania Museum graduate students, taught by Life Magazine photographers. Upon his death, Kintner also left an endowment towards various Museum activities and programs.
Additional records of Watson Kintner may be found at the Lancaster County Historical Society (MG-144 The Watson Kintner Collection, 1930-1954) and the University of Pennsylvania Archives (Coll. No. UPT 50, K 51).
