Newcomb College Photographs

Description

The Newcomb College Photographs consist of images of Newcomb students, classes, sports teams and athletics classes, Washington Avenue and Broadway Street campus buildings, and graduation photographs dating from roughly 1887 to 1930. These images offer a visual history of Newcomb College, its students, campus and programs during the first decades of its existence. As one of the early women's colleges in the United States, Newcomb College became known for its art department, producing some of the finest pottery and metalwork of the time. Newcomb was also known for its rigorous athletics program and the Newcomb basketball team was one of the first women's teams to compete regionally. The images in this collection portray Newcomb College's many early endeavors, its campuses, and the women who made up its student body.
