The Fred Henshaw Photograph Album consists of 289 black and white photographs that primarily document student life, social activities, and the Oregon Agricultural College campus during the years of Henshaw's attendance at OAC, 1916-1918. The membership and activities of Phi Delta Theta fraternity (formerly Kappa Sigma Nu) are particularly well chronicled by the photo album, which includes two images of the fraternity's installation ceremony, held in March 1918. Several images of World War I-era ROTC activities, including training, parades and individuals posing in uniform, are included in the album as well.
Images of campus life and student social activities form much of the remainder of the photo album. Included are numerous photographs - both formal and candid - of individual students, many of them annotated. A wide array of student activities are likewise pictured including picnicking and canoeing, swimming, studying, playing music, fishing, and dancing at fraternity functions. Group portraits of the OAC Glee Club - of which Henshaw was a member - multiple OAC football teams, and assorted students performing in theatrical productions can also be found. Annotated large-format images of several campus buildings and landscapes are available as well.
Four pages of undated photos near the end of the album depict Henshaw at a later stage in his life, circa 1925, posing with his wife Helen and other family members during a trip to the Oregon Coast and at home.
