University Archives

The University Archives has a large collection of photographs of the campus buildings and grounds dating from the opening of the school in 1892. Several aerial photographs are included in this collection. The archives houses only a small number of campus blueprints. Most blueprints are housed with the Physical Plant Division of the University which does not offer public reference service. Other significant collections include the following:

Collection includes correspondence with the firm of Hook & Rogers (1910s) and Thomas Sears (1920s) regarding construction of campus buildings and landscaping. Hook's correspondence generally regards travel arrangements and coordinating meeting times. Attached to a 1904 Hook letter is a photograph of a rendering of Spencer Hall by Hook.
