The collection consists primarily of medium format negatives housed in brown paper envelopes. Additional materials include medium format photo prints, 35mm negatives, 5x7 photo prints, and 8x10 photo prints.
Most of the collection stems from Standifer’s time as the recreation director for the Cactus Ordnance Works in Cactus, Texas. Through his hobby as an amateur photographer, Standifer documented the plant’s grounds, personnel, and sports teams as well as people, groups, and events in Cactus and nearby Dumas, Texas. Although Standifer worked at the Cactus plant from 1947 to 1952, the photographs of Cactus in this collection date from 1947 to 1949.
The collection also includes photographs and negatives of James Standifer and his family in Beaumont, Lillian Lela Hill Standifer's family in Hallettsville and Marble Falls, and Standifer's time at Lamar University and Texas A&M University.
