Historical Context

Shortly after the tragedies of September 11, 2001, the Special Collections Department at Hofstra University established its September 11 Project Collection and began collecting a wide variety of material related to the devastating events of that day. Later, after receiving a Documentary Heritage Program grant from the New York State Archives, work was begun on locating and photographing all of the permanent September 11 memorials and monuments on Long Island. Robert L. Harrison of East Meadow was chosen as the photographer.

Scope of Collection

The collection consists of over 500 color photos documenting all the September 11 memorials and monuments on Long Island.
