This collection consists primarily of work done by Eric Mull during his time as a student photographer for BGSU’s The Key from 1989-1991. The portion of the collection from the 1990 edition of the yearbook features photographs of on- and off-campus events and organizations, concerts, theater performances, and sporting events from both the university and Bowling Green Senior High School. The 1991 edition photographs contain mostly sporting events images, but also include on-campus events, Greek-related events, the Miss Bee Gee contest, and notable visitors to campus. The third box is a collection of miscellaneous color prints and negatives organized into categories that include on-campus scenes, sports, and other events. Subjects of note include marching band, campus protests, tractor pull, local rock and reggae concerts, student nightlife, East Merry Madness, church services, local community festivals, and high school prom photos.

Researchers with an interest in everyday student life in Bowling Green during the early 1990s will find this collection useful. The photographs, taken by a student photographer, showcase BGSU from the eyes of a student and allow for a unique point-of-view.
