Overview and metadata sections

Consists photographic albums created by Princeton University students. These albums, along with the other photograph collections in the University Archives, help document the experiences of students, faculty and staff at Princeton University. The albums date from 1851 to 1995, although the bulk date from the 1860s to the 1910s. New accessions are added regularly to the collection.

The Historical Photograph Collection's Student Photograph Albums Series is arranged chronologically by the student's class year or by the year of creation if the student's identity is unknown. Sometimes only an approximate date of creation can be determined. Please look to the end of the series for more recent additions, not in exact chronological order.

The Student Photograph Albums Series of the Historical Photograph Collection is an artificial collection assembled over a period of several decades from many sources. The majority of the albums were sent to the University by alumni or relatives of alumni; some have been removed from other collections in the University Archives.

Each album in this series has been catalogued into a database that is searchable on the web at Princeton University Historical Photograph Database. Choose "Albums" under "Division" to limit your search to only this collection.

For preservation reasons, original analog and digital media may not be read or played back in the reading room. Users may visually inspect physical media but may not remove it from its enclosure. All analog audiovisual media must be digitized to preservation-quality standards prior to use. Audiovisual digitization requests are processed by an approved third-party vendor. Please note, the transfer time required can be as little as several weeks to as long as several months and there may be financial costs associated with the process. Requests should be directed through the Ask Us Form.

Many of the albums in this collection are extremely fragile. Some of the bindings have broken, pages may be loose, and in some cases photographs have become loose. Researchers should use great care when examining them. Please examine only one album at a time, take the albums out of the boxes to look at them, and use padded cushions to support the albums on the desk. Please do not flip through an album; turn pages carefully and one at a time.
