Overview and metadata sections
This collection consists of a series of files containing photographs of Drexel University campus and organization events. Photos date as early as 1930 and as late as 2005; many are undated. The bulk of the photos are black-and-white or color prints, but files also contain a few negatives and contact sheets. Some photographs transferred from the Office of University Relations have captions or annotations associated with them, providing dates and additional information about the subject of the photograph.
Although the provenance of the photographs is not known, it is believed that most were originally transferred to the University Archives from the Office of University Relations. Archives staff have also occasionally added photos to this collection as they are found among unrelated records or accessioned.
Some additional photographs of campus locations and buildings are filed with campus plans, newspaper clippings, and other materials about the development of Drexel's buildings and campus in UR 10.3, the Buildings and campus reference collection.
Photos are arranged alphabetically by subject of photograph. Where readily available, additional information, such as the date that the photograph was taken, are written on the folder and transcribed in the folder list below. A single folder may contain several photos of a particular event, or photos may be divided among multiple folders. An entry in the folder list may sometimes represent more than one folder.
Chiefly transferred from the Office of University Relations, date unknown.
