Scope and Content:

The University Photograph Collection consists of photographs taken on behalf of Minnesota State University, Mankato and its predecessor institutions. These photos are pictures of students, faculty, buildings, sculptures on campus and the occasional regional location. Many of these photographs have been digitized, and can be found on the University Archives Website under the Digital Collections. http://mldm.lib.mnsu.edu/.

These photographs were taken by on-staff and contract photographers. Photos were taken for a variety of reasons including University Publications, documentation of campus events and activities, and construction.

The University Archives is continuously digitizing university photographs and adding them to the online MSU Photograph Collection. Once digitized, the originals are maintained and available in the archives.

Sets of photographs that still need to be digitized include:

  • Negatives: 1957-1968. There is an index in the archives for the negatives.
  • Binders: 1970s-1994. These binders include sports pictures, different events held on campus, buildings, and miscellaneous photos.
  • Sports Photos: 1987-1988. These are mostly headshots of the players and are in index boxes in the archives.
  • Faculty/Staff Photos: 1980s. These are headshots of the faculty and staff. Some of these photos are in the University Advancement Collection, while some of the head shots are in alphabetical order filed elsewhere. Most of these photos are scanned on demand and then filed online.



These photographs are available in the University Archives.
