Stanford Historical Photograph Collection
The collection contains more than 16,000 images documenting Stanford University and its founders. Photographs in the collection come from a wide variety of sources, including university offices and organizations, academic departments, and donations from alumni and others. The majority of the photographs are black and white gelatin prints, but nineteenth-century albumen prints are also represented as are cyanotypes and color prints. The collection spans the late 1880s through 1990s. More recent photographs can be found at the Stanford News Service.
