Harriet’s Collection Inventory

Harriet’s Collection — named for the first University Archivist, Harriet Moore — consists of about 25 cubic feet of photographic prints and negatives (approximately 30,000 items) dating from the late 19th century to the present. Harriet’s Collection is arranged into about 3400 subject files (people, events, campus buildings, etc.) and each file has been assigned a number. To distinguish them from photographs in other collections, Harriet’s Collection photograph numbers begin with a “#” symbol. There may be one or many images with a given Harriet’s Collection number.
