SCARC completed 2 new finding aids in May and June 2019. The following is a list and a little information about what we accomplished.
These finalized finding aids are available through the Archives West finding aids database, our Archon finding aids interface, and the OSUL discovery system (a.k.a. “the catalog”).
Both of these guides are for collections that were only minimally described and are now fully processed and described.
All of these materials are now available to researchers!
Collections that were only minimally described and are now fully processed and described:
William F. Groves Photographs, 1888-1942 (P 135)
The William F. Groves Photographs are comprised of photographs assembled by William Franklin Groves throughout his life in Corvallis, and his time as a student at Oregon Agricultural College. Groves graduated from Oregon Agricultural College in 1897 with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. Images from this collection have been digitized and are available in Oregon Digital.
Gerald Hoard Photograph Collection, circa 1890-1915 (P 068)
The Gerald Hoard Photograph Collection consists of glass plate negatives of Oregon Agricultural College scenes contemporary to the late-19th and early-20th century. Gerald Lester Hoard Jr. was born In Portland, Oregon on October 1, 1931 and attended Oregon State College between 1954 to 1955, where he studied engineering. The images clearly predate Hoard’s time as a student at Oregon State College, having been taken in the 1900s or earlier. Images from this collection have been digitized and are available in Oregon Digital.
