In collaboration with The Virginian-Pilot, the Sargeant Memorial Collection offers images from the newspaper’s photographic archives from the 1950s to 2000s. The Virginian-Pilot dates back to 1865, and in the 1920s it became one of the first newspapers in the region to create a photography department. The department continues to be nationally recognized for award-winning work. The images in this collection are representative of the tumultuous civil rights era and counterculture movement, the expansion and development of Hampton Roads, the region’s diverse citizenry, and the deep military traditions of the community.
