Welcome to A Photographic History of Oregon State University
As one of the first colleges and universities to offer photography as part of its curriculum in the early 1890s, OSU is well documented visually. Most of the those photographic treasures have made their way into the holdings of the Special Collections & Archives Research Center at OSU’s Valley Library. Gleaned from hundreds of thousands of images at the Center, many of the photos in the book and on this site have never before been seen by the general public.
Please enjoy this selection of historic images of OSU. To find out more about A School for the People, visit the OSU Press at http://osupress.oregonstate.edu/book/school-for-people.
