The Arthur Dodd Album is a composite album that contains the photographs of Dodd as well as those of other photographers at Pine Mountain Settlement School. Many of his own photographs, taken for publications associated with the School, have been copied by various staff members who either worked with Dodd or, in the case of Joe Bramlett, was his student at the School. This wide distribution often makes it difficult to determine the photographer, though the work of Arthur Dodd is generally very accomplished and often makes use of unique lighting elements or sometimes mechanical filtering. His work stands out for its clarity of composition and its masterful handling the medium, elements not often found in the “snapshots” taken by many of the staff at the School. He was a prolific photographer and his body of work is spread over his works for hire at the School, his personal interests, and work he produced for commercial projects. It is often difficult to trace the provenance of the images in his collection. Pine Mountain holds only a handful of negatives of his photographs. The bulk of his work spans the years from 1943-1946 but may be represented in images outside that time, as well.

The Berea Guide to Pine Mountain Settlement School Records, Part B, lists the photograph album as Series XIII and records the number of photographs in their series as 71 images, chosen from 79 credited to Dodd. It is likely that the number of photographs by Arthur Dodd taken at the School are in the hundreds, as he photographed for his own interests and at the request of others, as well as his work for hire by the School and other entities.
