This collection is arranged by broad topic in five series, some of which are further divided in topical subseries. There is a final sixth series for negatives. Photographs are ordered roughly chronologically within each series or subseries. In many cases dates are estimates, as many photographs are unlabeled and undated.
The Athletics series is the largest in the collection and consists of a series for each sport for which the Archives has photographs.
The next largest series, Students and campus life, is divided in three general subseries and includes formal and informal shots of students participating in all aspects of college life, including social events, academics, and residential life.
