  • Call no.: PH 044

Arthur Mange taught in the Biology Department at University of Massachusetts Amherst for 31 years before retiring in 1995. He is the co-author of four books on human genetics, served on a number of Town of Amherst committees, and remains on the committee that administers the Burnett Gallery at the Jones Library in Amherst Center.

He has taken tens of thousands of 35mm black and white film photographs over the course of 50 years, and processes them entirely by himself from developing the film to framing the finished prints. Publich exhibits (solo or group shows) have been in Amherst,Hadley, Pelham, Leverett, Easthampton, Southampton, Northampton, Springfield, and Boston. The subjects have been varied--whatever Mange thinks would make good black and white pictures. The locales have also varied, from many places in the United States and from half a dozen foreign countries. Presented in this collection are his best images from New England and New York.

Background on Arthur Mange

Spinulose ferns with shadows, 1968

Arthur P. Mange was born in St. Louis, Missouri on January 28, 1931. He graduated with a B.S. in physics from Cornell University (1954) then later from University of Wisconsin-Madison (1958 and 1963) for his master’s and Ph.D degrees. Mange completed his postdoctoral work at University of Washington-Seattle (1971-1972). He began teaching at the University of Massachusetts in 1964 in the Zoology Department and later, the Biology Department. Mange was a productive scholar in human genetics and author of four noted text books in the field. His research focused on the structure of human isolates, particularly the Hutterite populations of the plains states of the United States and Canada, but he was equally committed to improving the writing skills of undergraduate majors. He became professor emeritus when he retired in 1995 after teaching for 31 years. After his retirement, Mange served as chair on the Amherst Conservation Committee and Comprehensive Planning Commission. He currently serves as secretary on the committee for the Burnett Gallery at the Jones Library.

Throughout his scientific career, Mange pursued a strong interest in photography. In 1983, his New England images were featured in the exhibit, "Across the Valley (from Cummington to New Salem)," shown at the Burnett Galley. This exhibition was followed by "Delight in Familiar Forms" at the Hitchcock Center in 1984, celebrating some well-known plants and animals. Later exhibits featured whimsical signs: "Ring Bell to Admit Bird" and "Net Prophet," and travels to Norway, Iceland, and elsewhere. More recent shows were entitled "Close-ups," "Old Massachusetts Gravestones," "Water Scenes," and "Down to the Wire."

In addition to exhibitions Mange has donated collections for fund-raising auctions at New York University, the Cooley Dickinson Hospital, the University of Massachusetts Fine Arts Center, the Amherst Historical Society, and the Jones Library. His photographic collection held in SCUA spans more than half century of subjects reflecting his interests in animals, plants, our region, gravestones, whimsical signs, architectural details, and attention-grabbing shadows. All these collections represent black and white darkroom work, although his recent images have been taken digitally in color.

Mange is a member of the Pioneer Valley Photographic Artists, a group dedicated to fine art photography. He is a long-standing member of the committee that administers the Burnett Gallery, the community-oriented exhibition space at the Jones Library in Amherst.

Scope of collection

The Arthur P. Mange Photograph Collection consists of over 60 years of photography from across the globe. There is a significant focus on the Northeast region of the United States though his photographic journeys took Mange to fascinating locales in and outside of New England. Mange uses single-lens reflex cameras (including Olympus and Canon) with 35MM black and white film. He has previously explained using black-and-white film presents enough interesting challenges without adding color as another distraction. He shoots high resolutions images that feature good composition, texture, and clarity.

As a photographer, Mange likes to emphasize interesting and unusual images that he has found. These vary wildly from the close-up details of mosques in Turkey to crumbling gravestone inscriptions to shadows from the porch railing at the Emily Dickinson House. Many of his artful pictures include architecture, plants and animals, gravestones, patterns in nature, and whimsical signs. The photographic collection is presented in a variety of formats including mounted and unmounted prints.
