Scope and Content Note

(A81-33; A81-34)
This Record Sub-Group contains photographs and negatives (many of which are mounted for publication) of buildings and people at the University of Missouri-Columbia, (1880-1940). Many of the early photographs were originally published in view books in the early 1900's. These are booklets advertising programs and facilities available to prospective students and show the equipment and facilities in the laboratories and classrooms, the work of agriculture and horticulture students, and the early buildings on campus. There are photographs that document the construction of Memorial Tower, (1921-1926), and construction of Memorial Stadium, (1925-1926). Another small group includes copies of letters and diagrams that explain the construction and design of the original buildings. Other items in this Sub-Group include a photograph of Dr. Walter Williams at a dinner in Mexico City, and engravings of John C. Breckinridge, Jefferson Davis, and Joseph E. Johnston.
Note to Researcher: See the Vertical File, "Buildings, Agricultural Buildings" for a description of the history of the buildings in the College of Agriculture.

Historical Note:

The earliest buildings on the University campus are now what is called the "Red Campus". They are the buildings surrounding Francis Quadrangle. These buildings were built after the original Academic Hall burned in 1892. Parker Memorial Hospital and the Medical Laboratories were built on the northwest side of the Red Campus in the early 1900's.

Around the turn of the century, the College of Agriculture began a period of expansion. New buildings were erected to accommodate the growing program and student body. Built in native Missouri limestone and located to the east of the Red Campus, they make up the "White Campus". There were also new buildings on University Farm, located on the southeast corner of campus.

Series Descriptions:

This Record Sub-Group is not divided into separate record series. The order of the materials in the Sub-Group is alphabetical. The names of the building, both as it was named originally and its current name, are provided when appropriate.
