Everett Collection was established in 1990 by Morris Everett, Jr. and Ron Harvey. The firm's origins date back to 1961 when Mr. Everett began collecting stills on virtually every film ever made. Over time his collection expanded to include posters and lobby cards, and by the late 1980's he amassed one of the world's largest private collections of entertainment photography.
Ron Harvey, coming from the field of motion picture distribution, approached Mr. Everett about turning his avocation into a business. Soon, a flourishing partnership began with Mr. Harvey as managing partner. Over the next few years, Harvey, Everett, and the Everett staff reorganized the collection while continuously expanding it to cater to the specific needs of a growing, diverse client base.
