- Scope and Content:
This collection is made up of photographic negatives (primarily in 35mm and 6x7 formats), contact sheets and photographic prints (primarily in 5"x8" and 8"x10" sizes). Many of the photographs have been placed into folders, though there are also binders of photographic prints in this collection as well. As the University Photo Service was responsible for producing the Torch yearbook until 2014, many prints and negatives of photographs that appeared in the Torch can be found in this collection. The photographs document life and events on and around campus. Student dorm life, athletic events, campus visits by dignitaries, faculty portraits, graduations and building dedications are among the subjects of these photographs.
- Biographical / Historical:
