These graphics were created using PowerPoint (the medium I have been using for my lectures), some including montages of images obtained from a variety of sources. These graphics are a bit of a mixed bag, as I use them to fill gaps where there are not already existing images. They do not constitute a complete set of graphics (my full collection contains many copyrighted sources, and so they are only available on the local network).

The graphics are ordered by topic, and provided without annotation, although the names are usually suggestive of the subject. All are in GIF format. Copies of the original PowerPoint files with these graphics are available (as single large files).
