Scope and Content Note

The Edward T. Funkhouser Photographs consists of color photographs depicting the campus of North Carolina State University, 2001-2010. All of the photos were taken by Funkhouser, a professor of speech and communication at the university and associate dean. Seven albums contain 922 photographic prints, 2001-2003, grouped by subject. One folder contains 44 prints, 2003, of the original press box at Carter-Finley Stadium, which was replaced by the C. Richard Vaughn Towers in 2005. A folder of photographs concerning the replacement of the power system at the William Neal Reynolds Coliseum, 2005, is a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation printed on bond paper. One compact disc, 2003, contains 250 digital images, mostly corresponding to photographs in the albums of prints, along with other elements of a World Wide Web site maintained by Funkhouser, devoted to his photos of the North Carolina State University campus. Six additional compact discs contain images Funkhouser took around campus in 2004-2008. The subjects include construction around campus, a Barack Obama rally, and the annual Shack-A-Thon on the Brickyard. A DVD contains 786 images, mostly of construction projects and new buildings on campus, 2004-2006. One folder contains a holiday card from the North Carolina State University Libraries featuring one of Funkhouser's photographs, as well as a short professional profile of Funkhouser, 2003.

The digital component of the Funkhouser collection includes 2,667 photographs, organized into eight electronic folders; Campus Buildings, Campus Landscapes and Scenes, Construction, Student Activities, and Scenes around Raleigh. All were taken between 2001 and 2010 by Funkhouser around campus and Raleigh. The majority of the images were taken off a hard drive that Funkhouser donated to the Special Collections Research Center. Several images are duplicated on DVDs and printed photographs in the collection.
