About the Photos

Most of the photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs, 20 to 200 megabytes in size) from the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) Many were digitized by LOC contractors using a Sinar studio back. They are adjusted by your webmaster for contrast and color in Photoshop before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here.

Arthur Zickgraf: 1913

Arthur Zickgraf: 1913

My great-grandfather Arthur Zickgraf (standing far right) with his surveying class at Michigan Agricultural College in 1913 - Now Michigan State College. He later became a civil engineer and started Wolverine Engineering in Mason, Michigan.

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.
