Subjects & Activities
Scope and Contents
The collection includes print and some digital photographs of campus buildings, events, activities, subjects, and individuals, including alumni, faculty and staff, administrators, and visitors to campus.
It is important to note that if looking for a specific person, such as Margaret Thatcher, to look not only for that person's name but to also look at photographs from events that person likely attended, such as Charter Day and Commencement. The same should be said for subjects, such as the College Mace. In addition to it having its own folder, it can also be seen in photographs from Convocation, Charter Day, and Commencement.
Digital files require at least 72 hours advanced notice for access.
