I'm always happy to support interest in and requests for the image files from the Bob Campbell Papers. The dedicated staff at the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund have been very helpful in directing requests to us here. I collected, processed, and curate the original papers, slides, and print photographs as well as manage and support the online collection of Campbell's images from Karisoke 1968-'72. We don't sell these but provide them as a public service for research and education, offering high resolution image files for educational use/publishing and licenses for commercial publishing on a case-by-case basis.

If you visit UF Digital Collections at and use Advanced Search and Subject=Dian Fossey, the database returns over 1,200 images (every image in the collection includes her name in a general collection description so the subject limits the results to only images that include her although that's about half of all the images). You can also combine the Subject search with the "Filter By" dropdown box displayed on the left to limit to images of Dian with her dog Cindy, or gorillas (including specific individuals in cases where they were named on slide mounts), etc.

If from there you select the "Zoomable" link on any of those resulting images, you'll be able to toggle the full-page view. From there, any user can download the displayed image file. For the very large, high resolution image files (about 120 Mb) we ask that users contact Special & Area Studies digital reproductions staff to request these versions for publication. We only create a license when the publisher requires one.

We use a CC license to offer free and direct (self-service), non-commercial use of the jpeg2000 lower-resolution images available at our UF Digital Collections site. We also provide high-resolution (about 120Mb) image files via our department's Digital Reproductions services. This allows us to work with authors, publishers, and others to assist with image selection, arrange for license terms if necessary, and to assure proper credit. Once you have selected the images you wish to publish, download and complete the Duplication and Use Request Form. Then, please email the completed form to as an attachment. My colleague Caleb Del Rio (cc'd here) can work with you on file delivery if needed. It's important to include the specific URLs that you wish to download.
