Search this Collection
This collection includes photographs from the University of Nebraska at Omaha and its predecessors, the Municipal University of Omaha and the University of Omaha, dating from the institution's founding in 1908. It highlights cultural and community changes as well as development of the physical campus. Many of the original photographs represented in this collection were produced by University Relations. The collection also includes images derived from photographs donated by alumni and faculty as well as commercial photographers hired by the University. Original photographs originated from many OU or UNO colleges, schools, departments, offices, committees, campus organizations, faculty, staff, students, and alumni. Materials include black and white and color photographs of various sizes, some mounted or framed; slides; and negatives. Images depict OU or UNO students, faculty, staff, presidents, chancellors, ambassadors, alumni, athletic teams, events, buildings, and aerial views of campus.
