Collection Overview

Predominant Dates:1910-2000

Extent: 10.9 Cubic feet

Arrangement:

The collection combines two accessions from University Photographic Services into chronological clusters that follow and respect their original order. Boxes 1 through 6 comprised the first accession, and Boxes 7 through 32 the other. The second set (boxes 7 – 32) was made up of several smaller chronological groupings, some of which were organized according to a numerical and alphabetical index used by UPS.  These clusters and their original categories have been maintained.

The general arrangement of the collection is as follows. A detailed folder-level inventory is available for this collection.

Boxes 1-6: Agricultural Experimental Station, 4-H, State Fair, and other agricultural subjects, 1894-1964.

Boxes 7-8: General files organized by categorical index, 1946-1969 [bulk c. 1950s].

Scope and Contents of the Materials

This collection is comprised primarily of negatives and occasional photographs that were produced and maintained through the work of Purdue University’s Photographic Services division, which provided photography services on campus. Subjects vary widely and include faculty and staff, student activities, major athletic and cultural events, campus buildings, and department-related materials. Most of these images were produced between the mid-1940s and the mid-1980s. In some cases, negatives are reproductions or documentation of older images (as in the Historical Scenes folder of Box 13). Subjects of particular note include: sets that document staff and events in the Men’s and Women’s Residence Halls; a sizeable football collection spanning from 1952 to 1985, as well as many other athletics-related subjects; a set documenting events, décor, and staff of Purdue Memorial Union from 1967 to 1984; a substantial Student Activities file with images from 1950 to 1971; and negatives documenting the Agricultural Experimental Station, Purdue’s State Fair exhibits, and other agriculture-related items.
