Brigham Young University photographs

Brigham Young University photographs

Dates: approximately 1892-1976

This collection was found in the University Archives work room while taking inventory in September 2004. It is thought that these photographs were used in an exhibit in the library (possibly the University's Centennial celebration in 1975) but it has not been determined. The photographs span the years c.a. 1892 through c.a. 1976. This collection consists of one series containing photographs of Brigham Young University. They are divided into categories: academics, activities, dance, famous people, graduating classes, military, people/miscellaneous, places, service, and sports. Each category consists of photographs pertaining to the subject. These photographs are matted on a thick type of cardstock. Some photographs have descriptions of the picture and others do not.
