Linton- Life in the Collections
62) Beyond the Lines. Pictorial Reporting, Everyday Life, and the Crises of Gilded Age America.
Linton plays only a marginal role in Josuah Brown’s survey of pictorial reporting in early American press, using the example of Leslie’s Weekly. Brown refers to him as the head of the engraving department of this very popular and widespread journal. In this context, he also mentions Linton’s polemics against the mechanisation of his craft.
