FAU Students Photographs Collection, 1960s to 2000s

Identifier: UAP00052

Scope and Contents

This collection documents student life at Florida Atlantic University from the 1960s to the early 2000s. The bulk of the collection is predominately from the 1980s, with other boxes of photographs of FAU staff, alumni, and other FAU people ranging from the 1960s to 2000s. Many photographs show students in class, on the many patios and gardens of the campus, in the cafeteria, in their dorms, and in many other college life activities. Most of the photographs are staged and taken by FAU photographers for creative marketing purposes. In 2018, the Students 1960s Photograph Collection was consolidated into this collection. Those boxes were added into the current collection and updated. As of 2018, boxes 1 through 3 in this collection contain materials from the Students 1960s Photograph Collection.

There is a wide variety of photographs in color and black and white including 35mm negatives, contact sheets, and additional documents. A selection of items were described from each box to provide a sample of the collection. The Digital Library has digitized some photographs; please see "Related Mateirals" for a link to the online collection.
