About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

My son went to Michigan

My son went to Michigan State, and I showed him these pics and he commented: "that's why there is a street called "M.A.C." because it stood for "michigan agricultural college" Also, there is a big smokestack in the middle of campus that says "MSC" because it used to just be Michigan State College "

Arthur Zickgraf

My father, Carl Knopf, graduated from MAC in 1911 and we have many of his photos of his experiences while in school. Thank you for sharing yours.
