Samuel Alexander McElhinney, sixth plate portrait, 1853
Collection Description & Creator Information
Consists of formal portraits of Princeton University alumni. Images of students from the 18th century through the mid-19th century are mainly copies or prints from engravings, while images of students from the mid-19th century and 20th century are mainly photographic prints. Dates listed reflect the student's class year, rather than the year that the photograph was taken. In most, but not all cases, the photographs were taken during the time that the individuals were students.
