Claremont Colleges Photo Archive

Owning Institution: Claremont Colleges Library

About this Collection

This collection contains digital facsimiles of photographs, housed in the Library's special collections, of Claremont Colleges' buildings and landscapes. These digital images are the first phase of a larger digitization project that seeks to preserve the original photos by providing online access to The Colleges' archival photographs for teaching and research.

The Archive provides a photographic record of the founding and development of The Claremont Colleges: Pomona College, 1887; Claremont College (now, Claremont University Consortium), 1925; Claremont Graduate University, 1925; Scripps College, 1926; Claremont McKenna College, 1946; Harvey Mudd College, 1955; Pitzer College, 1963; Keck Graduate Institute of Applied Life Sciences, 1997.

The earlier dated original prints and negatives are housed in the Claremont Colleges Library special collections and in Scripps College's Denison Library.

More recent photographs have been added to the collection taken by Sam Kome, a librarian at the Claremont Colleges Library, and Claremont community member, David Amos, who photographed the colleges from 2010 – 2011.
