The University of Southern California has acquired the archive of architectural photographer Wayne Thom.

Thom is best known for his work photographing corporate structures around the Pacific region from the 1960s onwards/

Catherine Quinlan, dean of the USC Libraries, comments: “The Wayne Thom archive is a world-class addition to our collections from every perspective.

“It extends our already strong holdings in the photographic history of Los Angeles and the American West. It strengthens USC’s position as a source for understanding L.A. as a Pacific Rim metropolis. And most significantly, it makes certain that Wayne’s point of view will remain a vital part of scholarly and creative conversations among generations of researchers and artists.”
