Curator’s Talk 2/27: The Vanderbilt Photographic Archive: Visual Timeline of the University

Join us in the Special Collections Library from 11:10am-12:00pm  Wednesday mornings during this semester for fascinating talks led by faculty, librarians, archivists, and curators.   The talks take place weekly in the Special Collections Reading Room on the second floor of the Central & Divinity Libraries building.  This event is free and open to the public.

When the University Archives was founded in 1964, records and photographs of the early history of the university were concentrated in faculty and administrative offices scattered across the length and breadth of campus.  Join Special Collections Librarian Teresa Gray as she explores the early history of the University Archives and the development of its photographic collections.  This presentation will include rare, early photographs of the university, student life on campus, and faculty and staff who helped shape the course of the university.
