This week’s #ThrowbackThursday is hitting the books!
This week, we have a 5-1/2″ x 3-1/4″ black and white photograph of Union College students studying in the library. The library was housed in the administration building from 1891 until a library building was built in 1936.
This early 1900s images is published and owned by the Ella Johnson Crandall Memorial Library at Union College. The library at Union College is home to an archival collection of books, periodicals, audiovisual materials, photographs, artifacts, and manuscript collections related to the history of Union College and the College View community. The photographs selected for inclusion in Nebraska Memories include early scenes of the Union College campus and downtown College View.
Check out the full collection on the Nebraska Memories archive.
Nebraska Memories is a cooperative project to digitize Nebraska-related historical and cultural materials and make them available to researchers of all ages. The Nebraska Memories archive is brought to you by the Nebraska Library Commission.
