Scope and Contents of the Materials

The Southern Illinois Normal University Photograph Collection consists of copy prints depicting university buildings, students, faculty, and Carbondale from c. 1860 to 1940.  The prints were created by University Photocommunications director Herb Meyer and Kay Rippelmeyer-Tippy during a 13 month project from May 1988 to June 1989.  They created master copy negatives and proofs of photographs from a variety of creators, many of which were held by the University Museum.  The prints are identified at the item level in the contents list.  Most prints are undated but are arranged by decade in which it was estimated they were originally created.

Collection Historical Note

Southern Illinois University was chartered in 1869 and opened its doors to the first class of 143 students in 1874.  Originally, the university was called Southern Illinois Normal College.  Normal universities were teacher's colleges, aimed at standardizing and improving public education in the state by providing more accessible college-level instruction to teachers.  Southern Illinois Normal University was the second such university to be established in Illinois.  Its first president in 1874 was Robert Allyn.  The university expanded rapidly in the post-war 1940s and 1950s under the leadership of Delyte Morris, the longest serving president in school history from 1948-1970.  In 1957 the university purchased Shurtleff College in Alton, Illinois, which was later developed into Southern Illinois University Edwardsville.  The land for the Edwardsville campus was purchased in 1960 and the university held its first classes in 1965.  Today the SIU system also includes the SIU School of Medicine in Springfield (est. 1970) and the SIU School of Dental Medicine in Alton (est. 1972).
