 Collection
Identifier: UNO-0012

This collection includes photographs from the University of Nebraska at Omaha and its predecessors, the Municipal University of Omaha and the University of Omaha, dating from the institution's founding in 1908 to the present. Photographs originated from many OU or UNO colleges, schools, departments, offices, committees, campus organizations, faculty, staff, students, and alumni. Materials include black and white and color photographs of various sizes, some mounted or framed; slides; and negatives. Images depict OU or UNO students, faculty, staff, presidents, chancellors, ambassadors, alumni, athletic teams, events, buildings, and aerial views of campus. The series of boxed photographs is divided into five categories: administration, campus scenes, ceremonies & events, sports, and student life.
