UMP - Photographs relating to the University of Nottingham and its predecessor University College, Nottingham, collected by various departments and staff at the University
Photograph albums from the University of Nottingham and its predecessor University College, Nottingham
The collection comprises photographs which have been collected together in albums by staff at the University of Nottingham.
Accessible to all readers.
The maintenance of a photographic record of events at the University through the creation of photograph albums appears to have been the responsibility of the Registrar’s Department in the early years. Subsequently other departments also created their own photographic records and photograph albums.
The photograph albums have been transferred to Manuscripts and Special Collections from different departments within the University between 1972 and 2009.
Photograph albums have been grouped together on account of their format rather than by provenance or by subject content. There are three photograph albums which consecutively record significant people and events at the University College and the University from the laying of the foundation stone of the new University College buildings in 1922 through to the University of Nottingham Degree Day in 1968. A further album includes images of University staff, dignitaries and others associated with the University College around the time of the opening of the buildings at Highfields in 1928. Other photographs albums record building developments and the Queen’s visit to the University in 1999.
No archival arrangement has been necessary. Photograph albums are added to the end of the sequence regardless of date or subject.
Identification of copyright holders of unpublished material is often difficult.
Permission to make any published use of any material from the collection must be sought in writing from the Keeper of Manuscripts and Special Collections
Reprographic copies can be supplied for educational and private study purposes only, depending on access status and the condition of the documents.
