The University Historic Photograph Collection is the visual history of Colorado State University from the 1880s to 2000. It documents almost every aspect of campus life, including academics, athletics, student activities, faculty research, Cooperative Extension, and the Colorado Agricultural Experiment Station. Materials dated from the 1880s to the 1950s are processed, but the majority of the digital collection is from the early years of the 20th century. For more information about the collection, see http://lib.colostate.edu/archives/findingaids/university/uhpc.html.
