Description
These images primarily document Stanford buildings, including the Quad, the 1900 Library, the library and gymnasium that were destroyed in the 1906 earthquake, Memorial Church, Memorial Arch and the museum. Other subjects include the Cactus Garden, the Angel of Grief, Palm Drive, and the Entrance Gates. Some images of the Quad are stamped on the reverse with “F. L. Olmsted & Co.” Two images of note are the University Mayfield Brass Band, ca. 1900, whose musicians included one African American; and an armed man on guard duty on campus after the 1906 earthquake.
Background
These photographs were originally held by the Stanford Museum. Some of the images are also represented in other photographic collections within the University Archives; where possible, those that are duplicates of images in the Stanford Historical Photograph Collection have been identified.
