Loose photographs of graduates and former students are arranged chronologically by graduating class, beginning with 1836. Files include photographs taken while students attended Oberlin, and also after they left. Many of the latter were taken during class reunions.
Some students went on to become faculty or staff members at Oberlin College, or received honorary degrees. Therefore researchers should consult both this record group and that for Faculty, Staff, Trustees and Others, RG 32/3/2. Some photographs of students can be found in the student files in record group 28. See Related Materials for a list of other record groups that hold images of former students.
One box contains photographs of Academy or Preparatory Department students, and unidentified students.
