About the Collection
The University Archives photograph collection (colloquially known as the Photographic Vertical Files) is one of the most heavily utilized collections in the University Archives. The collection contains approximately 500,000 images compiled over many years from archival transfers of photographs from the Office of Public Information, the Daily Collegian, the LaVie yearbook, research publications, individual colleges and departments, and staff photographers. This digital collection brings together a modest sample of the images found in the collection.
