Scope and Contents: The Morris Library Photograph Collection is an artificial collection of photographs, 35 mm slides, glass slides, and negatives created and compiled by former library faculty and staff. The images depict library events, faculty, staff, student employees, pictures of library interiors and work areas, exhibits in the Hall of Presidents, and Friends of Morris Library events. Some highlights include the Morris Library cornerstone laying, the library's 25th anniversary celebration, early leaders such as deans Ralph McCoy and Kenneth Peterson, and interior photographs of various library departments prior to renovation. The contents of Box 3 contain several negatives used in the ICarbs journal, formerly published by Morris Library in the 1970s and 1980s. Boxes 4 and 5 contain glass slides of Morris Library floor plans and the "Your University Library" presentation.
