Campus Photographs, October 1970 Collection

Identifier: UAP00019

Scope and Contents

These photographs were created to document activities by the staff at Florida Atlantic University. A photo book was created by taping the photograph(s) to a leaf of bond paper. Twenty-one pages had information about the photograph(s) typed at the top of the page. The pages were punched with a three hole punch and put into a thin notebook. The photographer was not identified. Upon receiving the photo book from Ms. Elfriede Lynch, the pages were removed from the book and placed in a clamshell box until the collection was processed in 2012.
