    Administrative Information

    Acquisition Information

    This is a factitious collection made up of individual items or small groups of items donated or transferred to or occasionally purchased for University Archives.

    Scope and Content

    This is the most general and wide-ranging of University Archives pictorial collection categories. It includes all kinds of events and activities on the campus: a wide variety of student activities (including sorority and fraternity groups and houses), official events, faculty appearances, meetings, etc. (Note, however, that photographs of ceremonies taking place in the Greek Theatre have generally been filed under the number for that category, UARC PIC 01.)
    When identified people are present, every effort has been made to record these names in the caption information.
    Names of photographers have been noted when known, but many of the photographs lack such information. Dates of particular events are known, but many photographs have only approximate dates.
    The collection is primarily of black and white photographic prints, but it also includes some color photographs, and in addition black and white as well as colored postcards, both photographic and printed. Items 8x10 inches and smaller have the designation UARC PIC 04; oversize items have the designation UARC PIC 400.
