Northeastern University's Historical Photographs Available Online

Dean Wilfred Lake teaching a marketing class, 1940.

Northeastern University has a rich past dating back to the late 1800s when it was part of the YMCA of Greater Boston. This history has been documented in the many photographs carefully preserved in the University Libraries' Archives and Special Collections Department. More than 4,000 of these photographs are now searchable online in the latest digital collection: Northeastern's Historical Photographs (http://www.lib.neu.edu/nuphotos/). This compilation is a growing body of images relating to the University from 1902 to the present. In it, researchers will find representations of academic programs, student life, faculty, the campus, athletics, and University events including commencement. Images that are not yet available electronically are accessible by visiting the Archives and Special Collections Department in 92 Snell Library.

If you are interested in ordering an image or viewing any of the original images in this collection, or for more information, please contact the Archives: archives [at] neu.edu.
