Library helps with UC Mural

Have you seen the new mural “The U: Dynamic History, Vibrant Traditions” at the University Student Center? The 108 ft mural portrays the University’s 85 year history in chronological order by the five administrations from President Ashe to President Shalala. The majority of the historical images used in the mural for the first three presidencies were provided by the University Archives’ Historical Photograph Collection.

The University of Miami Archives holds over 500,000 photographs, negatives and slides that document the University’s growth from the 1920s through the presidency of Henry King Stanford. Especially rich are the images of UM sports, the expansion of each campus, student life, and special events such as commencement ceremonies. Please go to the University of Miami Historical Photograph Collection website to browse or research approximately 8,000 already digitized images from the collection.

The reorganization and digitization of the historical photographs were made possible by a collaboration of several Richter departments for two years from 2007 to 2009. The digitized collection has become one of the most popular digital contents of the Richter Library, and the University Archives has been serving important clients with the images from President Shalala and Provost LeBlanc, the Trustees, and the Alumni Association.
