We describe the two large surface photometry surveys of elliptical galaxies, completed at Mt. Hopkins and Lick observatories. These comprise the largest such surveys of early-type galaxies to this date, and will provide us with a large set of uniform quality data for a variety of statistical and dynamical studies. We discuss briefly some results from the Mt. Hopkins survey.
