Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Collection contains two photograph albums and many loose photographs, largely cyanotypes. They primarily document student life at Stanford during both Amy and Agnes Ferguson's years on campus, ca. 1896-1902, and include images of students on campus, Escondita Cottage and other university buildings, fraternity houses, and student athletics (football, baseball, and golf). Images of note include a horse cab on University Avenue, Palo Alto; David S. Jordan at a cornerstone laying (probably the 1898 library); Encina dining hall; and the teaching skeleton in a dress.
Amy Ferguson earned her A.B. in English at Stanford University in 1902; she married Harry James Edwards, Stanford Class of 1901, in 1907. As a student she was a member of the Alpha Phi sorority. Her sister Agnes Ferguson (Mrs. Walter G. Hunter) earned her A.B. in Latin at Stanford in 1898.
