New Digital Collections Online: Stanford Historical Photograph Collection (16,000+ Images)

From the Stanford University Libraries “Special Collections Unbound” Blog:

In celebration of Stanford University’s 125th anniversary, an exhibit of the Stanford Historical Photograph Collection (SHPC), which comprises one of the Archives’ core pictorial collections documenting the history of the university, is now accessible online through Stanford Exhibits.

SHPC contains over 16,000 images of Stanford scenes, including photographs of and relating to the Stanford family, views of the campus and individual buildings, photographs of students and student life activities, and photographs of faculty and administrative staff. The majority of photographs are black and white gelatin prints but nineteenth-century albumen prints mounted on boards are also represented as are cyanotypes and color prints. The collection spans the late 1880s through the 1990s.
