- The collection of Swarthmore College lantern slides contains historic images of the College and Borough of Swarthmore and photographs of College events and activities. The core of the collection was the selection presented by Professor George A. Hoadley at the Alumni Banquet on June 9, 1917. An avid amateur photographer, he served as the president of the Swarthmore College Camera Club which sponsored an annual lantern slide exhibition. The lantern slides were created from a number of sources including photographs by Charles Doron, James Vail, Herbert N. Noxon, and Broadbent and Phillips. In addition to the Hoadley slides, the collection also includes colored photographs by John Wister relating to the College and Crum Woods, lantern slides made from the campus plans of Karchner and Livingston (1931), and glass plate negatives by James Vail.
