Abstract

The Old Dominion University Photographic and Multimedia Collection (RG 32) contains a wide range of photos relating to the university’s history from the 1930s to the present.

Scope and Contents of the Materials

This collection includes a variety of photographs covering the history of the University from 1930 to present day. Photographic subjects include administration, faculty and staff, buildings and grounds, athletics, academic departments, events, convocations, theater and musical performances, student and Greek organizations, and student life. In the 1990s other visual multimedia representations began to be added to the collection, which include VHS, DVD, microform, and photo CD’s.

The print photographs from the Old Dominion University Photographic and Multimedia Collection have been scanned and are available in the Old Dominion University Libraries Digital Collections.

Collection Historical Note

The University Photographic and Multimedia Collection serves as a pictorial history of the university from its founding as the Norfolk Division of William and Mary in 1930 to the present day as Old Dominion University. The photos show the growth of the school from the first William and Mary extension classes held in the Old Larchmont School to the huge multi-building, multi-degree University that is now Old Dominion.  These photos and multimedia document the change in the school’s journey from an extension of the College of William and Mary in 1930 to becoming a college in 1961 to a full-fledged university in 1969 and onward still to the present day.
