Table of contents What's This?
Description
Photographs, negatives, and photographic slides created and collected by campus staff, faculty, and students between 1900-2010. Images include campus buildings and landscape, student activities, special events, classrooms and coursework, faculty and staff events, and aerial views of campus and the surrounding area.
Background
The photographic images chronicle the growth and development of colleges and departments, campus events and student life including Poly Royal, Homecoming, the annual Rose Float, and athletics. The collection also includes campus views and aerial photography, buildings and grounds, students and faculty in classroom settings or involved in “learn-by-doing” field work. Portraits of administrators, faculty, students, staff, athletes, and well-known alumni and visitors are also included. The photographs were created and collected by the staff, faculty, students, and alumni of Cal Poly. Many were created by a former centralized communications and technology department (ITS), by the former Public Affairs Department, the former Public Affairs Office, and by the former Audiovisual Department. The collection also includes candid photographs captured by students as part of student club events, campus activities, and formal campus events; created by campus faculty and staff during course-related activities or campus events; as well as photographs taken by the student staff of the Mustang Daily newspaper.
