University negatives update

Special Collections has been working hard to digitize our immense archive of university negatives from the 1940s through the 1960s. It’s quite a collection, and includes cherished buildings, lawn parties on the Old U, images of North Campus in the early days, and plenty of students. These photographs of the men’s swim team date to the late 1940s or very early 1950s, judging from the golfing apparel in the surrounding photographs.


As we continue to work on these photographs, we’ll add periodic updates. We’re also working to place these images on our ContentDM site, and you can see the progress we’re making at this link.

Happy Friday, and enjoy the weekend!
