A bit tardy ~ new guides for July!

Finding aids are maps to collections and the following is a list of the 6 finding aids for SCARC collections that were completed or updated during July 2014.  All are available through the NWDA finding aids database as well as on the SCARC website, and MARC records for the collections are available through the OSU Libraries’ Catalog, Summit Navigator, and Worldcat.

This month’s batch consists of guides for  5 “new” collections that were received in 2013 or 2014 and  1 maps collection.  As of July 31, 2014 the OSU Special Collections & Archives Research Center had 780 finding aids in NWDA.

The closing of the co-ops, the adding of some archives

With the closing of Avery Lodge, Azalea House, Oxford House, and Dixon Lodge in June 2014 our collections archivist Karl McCreary has been REALLY busy.

He brought in nearly 25 cubic feet of items, dating from the 1950s to 2014, mainly framed class pictures and photo albums with pictures that show all sorts of college hijinks… Here are few snaps I took of his back table — notice all the frames he had to take apart!

Determined to preserve their community for current and future students, a group of co-op residents and alumni have established the goal of starting a new off-campus co-op in Corvallis. Organizers of the newly formed Cooperative Housing Alumni Association are now seeking a dwelling for the soon-to-be-displaced students in an effort to continue the co-op tradition. In addition to the challenge of locating an appropriately large residence, procuring sufficient start-up funding is now of chief concern to the CHAA. With fundraising efforts underway, the Association hopes to secure a house and organize a new co-op by fall term of 2014. If successful, the formation of this new co-op would help protect and promote the co-op lifestyle for future generations of OSU students. CHAA is currently accepting donations to fund this important project.

Layers: Past & Present

We love it when students use our collections creatively.  In Winter term Julia Bradshaw, Assistant Professor in the Art Department asked Ruth Vondracek to conduct a class for Art 399: Concepts In Digital Imaging.   The students learned how to use the SCARC finding aids and had fun picking out photos at the same time. As one student said, “… it was very intriguing to see all of the old photographs and to learn what is offered through the archives.”

The student’s assignment was to find an archival photograph of a Corvallis location in the SCARC collections, re-photograph the same location and blend the old and the new.  We think you will agree that the results draw the past evocatively into the present.

Watch for our exhibit of the student’s photographs to be held in the Valley Library later in Spring term.

Amy Ortwein

Amy Ortwein

My primary interests lay in nature. I originally searched through the Digital Archive online for pictures of the Willamette River and found one from Mary’s River that was of good quality. I am not sure of the exact date of the original photograph or of the original spot.  I did though have a faint idea of where the original image was taken because of the location of Mary’s Peak in the background.  I ended up taking over a hundred photographs of the area; I then made a collage in order to create an image similar in style to the original large format image.

Jerome Stretch

I chose a photo from 1970 looking along 3rd Avenue in Corvallis.  The photograph was actually mislabeled as “Looking north on 4th Ave”, but through talking to a classmate and going to the site of the photo, I determined that it was actually 3rd avenue.  I decided to use the image because I thought that it was interesting that the Safeway has not changed locations since 1970.  I am also interested in street scenes and so the photograph spoke to me.  The fact that I had to figure out where it was taken, and the history behind it, was also pretty neat. 

Teresa Yoshiura

My photo project was about the comparison of 1980s and modern Women’s Basketball.  I chose this theme because I wanted to try something different from landscape or building, which were the themes for everyone else.

Tomas Patlan

I chose an image from the first Oregon State graduation held in Gill Coliseum because I wanted to create an eerie and ghostly image of the past. As the student population ever increases at Oregon State, the venues of graduation have also changed. Before having graduation in Gill, it was held in the pool area of Langton. Now, the student population is so large that the only area to house thousands and thousands of graduates is the Reser football stadium.

Stirling Gorsuch

I chose to make a photomontage of the original “Campus Store” combined with the present day location on Monroe St. I find it interesting how the space has changed into the “University Center” of today, which houses Dutch Bros. Coffee and office spaces above. I also cropped out most of the vintage photo’s surrounding environment, which shows how the town has developed immensely since then. . I thought it was clever to have a couple people bicycling; I is almost as if they are biking into the world of when the Campus Store existed in this location. There is certainly a nostalgic feeling in the Campus Store photo. We can see how the area has changed, but also see from where the University has come. It was fun to see this come to life!

Heather March

I chose this picture because of the subject matter, Fairbanks Hall, and the interesting elements in the image, created by the walkway and the trees along the left side. I’m not sure when it was taken, but I think sometime around the thirties based off other images I saw that looked to be taken at the same time and the look of the outfits of the people in the photograph. Looking through all these pictures showed me how much campus has changed.

Jackie George

The photo I picked was of Weatherford Hall from 1941. I have always heard stories about the building, since most of my family has attended Oregon State. I knew that it used to be the ROTC building, but didn’t know much else about it. I thought that it was so interesting that the building itself looks exactly the same, but the inside and the surrounding areas have changed so much. I wanted to show that the building used to be just in the middle of an open field and how now it is surrounded by buildings. I did this by making a panoramic photo and layering in the old photo.

Merri Lewis

I chose to photograph the McAlexander Fieldhouse because I am an Army ROTC cadet and the building is a big part of my life here at OSU. I absolutely loved looking through the boxes of the old photographs of the building and found that it was originally an Armory. My project represents a balance between the past and the present and how both are necessary pieces of the whole. In Army ROTC, history is an important part of our learning in developing leadership so it was really fun to be able to blend history into the present with this building since it such a big part of my life right now.

Rachel Boucher

I ended up choosing a photo of the Benton County Courthouse. I chose this photo because that building has always interested to me due to its old architecture. When composing my piece it was interesting to see the lack of changes to the building. Besides some slight changes, the building has remained the same. In contrast to the courthouse, the outer environment has changed drastically with new additions of paved roads and power lines.

Kaylee Weyrauch

The four photographs I chose were of places on campus. The first one is of Azalea House, then “Lover’s Lane”, then Campus Way and the last photo was of Fairbanks Hall. I picked these four because when they are put together, they show the route I take every day to school. They mean something to me and were fairly easy to locate in the Archives.

Shae Williams

I chose this image for my project because it depicted Benton Hall. I spend a lot of my time in Benton and I know it is one of the oldest buildings on campus. Though the building has changed little (on the outside) everything around it has been greatly altered by time. The view from which the original photo is taken is now almost completely obscured by trees. It was cool to compare the original image with the image I ended up taking from the same spot side by side.

Emily Lyons

I chose to use this photo of E.E. Wilson because it seemed to capture the essence of Oregon State through both the architecture and the human activity. Before this assignment, I had no idea that Benton Hall had been a part of Oregon State’s history for so long. I felt compelled to use it in my work. Another reason why this photo grabbed my attention was because of the man on the bicycle. Riding a bike on and through campus is a mode of transportation which students and faculty alike use on a daily basis today and I was surprised to see that it was just as important in the early 1900’s. When originally making the decision about the image, I was drawn to the postcards; I loved the nostalgic qualities and tactility. I paired the photo with the old postcard format. I then meshed an original photo I took with the older one and created a postcard which could possibly be sent out through the university for some occasion.

Manasa Adajian

I choose the courthouse because it’s a magnificent building and I walk by it every time I am downtown. I think it an important landmark in Corvallis. Also, I think it’s pretty tight to see how things have changed over time.

Tiffany Cha

For my project I used the photos of the Lady in the Fountain, and it was great to learn about some of the history of OSU. It was heartbreaking to hear that the fountain was repeatedly vandalized and eventually destroyed only about 20 years after being at OSU, but it was reassuring to see that there were students who cared and guarded the statue.  It’s great that you have these photos that show a part of the history of OSU that is no longer here. Seeing this statue almost a century after it was destroyed is amazing, and I’m glad that I got to see and learn about it.

Friday Feature: SCARC updates

A lot has been happening around SCARC lately!

We are in the midst of installing a new exhibit on the Obo Addy Legacy Project and Milagro (officially known as the Miracle Theater Group) in the 5th floor foyer. OMA curator Natalia Fernandez will write more about the exhibit in the Oregon Multicultural Archives blog, but here are some fun shots I took this morning.

History of Science librarian Anne Bahde had the Oregon Master Beekeepers program in for a visit this afternoon, but her big work over the past two weeks is a collection accession that will remain somewhat shrouded in mystery, but she reports that her favorite thing recently was bringing in a bag of irradiated dirt collected from Hanford in the 1970s. Here’s the teaser to the mystery – these boxes are now full – but not of dirt. Stay tuned for updates!

Of course my favorite thing from the past week was the OHBA prom launch party — Tap into History.

McMenamins Mission Theater marquee

But I also travelled to Monterey a few weeks ago to present a poster at the National Council on Public History and was interviewed for Library Journal.

Happy Belated Birthday to OSU Flickr Commons!

Five years and a handful of days ago we embarked on a trip into unchartered territories. What would happen if we joined other cultural heritage institutions in the newly born Flickr Commons?

It was an easy choice for me — promoting access, celebrating photographs, having a load of fun. It also complimented our other Flickr account.

But this was a shift in many ways for our archives, asking us to think about copyright and access, use and promotion. If we put items in Flickr Commons, according to the legally binding contract we signed, those items were free and clear for use. We still asked that people filled out permissions forms, but those were just a formality and used for tallying numbers.

We were joining a pretty formidable group, with the Library of Congress and Smithsonian among the members. the Library of Congress in particular had reported HUGE spikes in interaction and use. We braced ourselves.

Big spikes never came, though we have had a whole lot of views over the past 5 years, even without adding a lot of new content. People continue to appreciate our willingness to offer access to historical items that can often be “locked down” or prohibitively expensive to use. I’m still proud to be the first university in the Commons, and still happy that I wrote that email 5 1/2 years ago.

And it’s still fun.


Friday Feature Mystery: What on Earth Is Going On?

We received a strange black-and-white photo at SCARC from the College of Agricultural Sciences recently. No date for the photo was given, nor a description. Unsure of what the photo was depicting, our accessioning guru (Karl McCreary) chose to describe it as “shaving the fields.”

Our volunteer Clare thinks that someone decided that marshmallows were a good fertilizer, but wonders what the strange box is on the small table.

What do you think? Leave your guesses, funny titles, or captions in our comments. If you know what is really going on, please satisfy our curiosity!

Friday Feature: Fabulous Finding Aids
