Photograph Collections

Holy Family’s photograph collections provide visual documentation of the University and surrounding locale pre 1954 to the present. Though created for university purposes, the photographs are often artistic in their composition and provide unique views of Holy Family from many perspectives. Photographs are found in a wide variety of University Archives collections. In addition to photographs, the University Archives includes contact sheets, slides, negatives, lantern slides, and similar other media in this collection.

Like text records, photographs are arranged in record groups, series, and subseries. Some examples include academic life; student life; buildings Familogue; athletics; administration, faculty, staff; commencements; campus scenes.

Gradually, inventories of each photograph series are being completed and made available to researchers. Selections of photographs will be digitized and some will be published on the Internet in online exhibits.

In general, there are no restrictions on access to photographs. In particular, there are restrictions on photographs that are in fragile condition. Also, there are special guidelines for using and reproducing the various photograph series.
