Finding Aid for Law School Historic Photographs 1889-1967 (UGA 05-016)

Record Group 2-19, School of Law
1.25 Linear Feet : one oversize flat box, one map folder

Scope and Contents:

This collection consists of historic photographs of students and faculty of the UGA School of Law, transferred from the School in 2005. In addition to images related to the Law School, there are subjects such as the 1891 UGA Base Ball Club (right) and the cryptic 1891 photograph inscribed "The Chi Phi Girls" (below), both shown much reduced in size.

For preservation framed items were removed from frames, minimizing contact with acidic materials, and gently cleaned of dust. All items in this collection were photographed by the Libraries Photoservices for the Law School. Reference numbers for the negatives are recorded on the backs of the photographs.
