Class of 1885, 1885
Collection Description & Creator Information
The collection consists of approximately 700 glass-plate negatives of images of Princeton University taken by the Rose Photography Studio. The negatives depict campus events, alumni reunions, class photographs, and student groups.
All information regarding the content and the number of plates in the collection was transcribed from existing box labels. Any discrepancies between this list and the contents of the collection are the result of the original labels. Though most of the plates lacked accompanying dates, by and large the majority of the class photos were taken at reunions.
- Archival Appraisal Information:
No appraisal information is available.
