Harold Troxel Vedder Photograph Collection, 1913-1916

Scope and Content Note

The Harold Troxel Vedder Photograph Collection consists of images assembled by Vedder during his student years at Oregon Agricultural College. The photographs depict campus views and buildings, athletic teams and events, especially football; military training; and student activities. Of special note are images documenting the rivalry between Oregon Agricultural College and the University of Oregon (commonly known as the Civil War) and students guarding the Lady of the Fountain on lower campus, which was frequently a target of vandalism.

Most of the photographs in the collection are photographic postcards; some were published by the Pacific Photo Co. in Salem, Oregon. Several of the images are snapshot photographic prints. All of the images have been assigned individual item numbers (P190:01 thru P190:72).
