|Title||UA 114 - University Archives Photograph Collection|
|Introduction||The University Archives Photograph Collection offers a visual record of the history of Bowling Green State University. The collection contains photographic prints and some negatives, and depicts buildings and grounds, faculty and staff, campus events, student clubs and organizations, departments, and sporting events.|
Duplication of materials in this collection is permitted for the purposes of preservation and research. No restrictions exist on the use of this collection. As described in the Visiting Researcher Application Form, researchers using this collection assume full responsibility for conforming to the laws of libel, privacy, and copyright.
|Scope and Content||The University Photographs collection is organized into six categories: Buildings, Departments, Groups & Organizations, People, Sports, and Subjects. The inventory for the People category is attached here as a .pdf|
The photographs in the collection range in date from the 1920s through the early 2000s, with the bulk being from the 1960s through 1990s. Most of the prints are in black & white. The photographs in this collection were gathered from a variety of sources. Some of them are prints from the News Service Negatives collection, and based on the assigned negative numbers, addition information about them may be available, including event/individuals shown and approximate dates. Other images are unidentified and undated and the only information available is what folder they were filed in.
There are some overlaps both within and between categories. For example, photographs of the French House appear in the Buildings category under both French House and La Maison Française; and there are entries in that same category for Men's Gym and Eppler-Men's Gym. Between categories there are also occasional overlaps, such as a folder for Falcon Mascot (Subjects) and Freddie Falcon (People) and La Maison Française as a folder title in both the Buildings and the Groups & Organizations category.
Finally, there may be some errors in the listings - for example, Phi Beta Kappa is erroneously listed as a sorority. Efforts are underway to check these listings and correct them as necessary.
