UNO Gateway Photograph Collection

 Collection — Multiple Containers
Identifier: UNO-0152

Scope and Contents

The Gateway Photographs Collection is mostly prints and digital images created by photographers for use by the student newspaper. A small number of negatives and contact sheets are also found in the collection. Subjects of photographs include theater productions, athletics, campus events, and people on campus from approximately the 1970s to the 2010s. Most of the black and white photographs are sorted by general topic or identifying information such as basketball or by the first letter of the last name in the case of most photographs of people. The collection also includes a small number of promotional photographs received for films, bands, and similar. The digital images have not yet been reviewed.
