Abstract
The departments which became the College of Engineering and Architecture at Washington State University were in place when the school opened in 1892. The images document the programs, research, and day-to-day life of the faculty, students, and staff of the College of Engineering and Architecture. Though a small number of items predate 1965, the bulk of the collection covers the late 1960s through the early 1990s.

Biographical/Historical note

The departments which became the College of Engineering and Architecture at Washington State University were in place when the school opened in 1892, with the first graduates in 1897. In 1946, a reorganization established the Washington State Insitute of Technology as the entity which included the academic departments as the College of Engineering, the School of Mines, the Division of Industrial Research and the Division of Industrial Service. The Instutute was again reorganized in July 1966 into a College of Engineering with academic departments, a Research Division and a Technical Extension Service. In 1984, it was redefined as the College of Engineering and Architecture.

Scope and Contents note

The images document the programs, research, and day-to-day life of the faculty, students, and staff of the College of Engineering and Architecture. Though a small number of items predate 1965, the bulk of the collection covers the late 1960s through the early 1990s. Many of the photographs found in Quest and other Engineering and Architecture publications can be found within this collection.

Arrangement note

The photographs in this collection are separated into eleven separate series, the majority of which are fields of study within the College. A few are not - Extension is the College's statewide outreach program, and the final three series are all general topics within the college. The series are placed in alphabetical order (excepting the final three more general series). Within each series the materials are separated by formats, with photographic prints and negatives foldered together, and slides foldered separately after them. Within each of those format types, items are ordered chronologically. There are a few subject specific folders in the set, and those are generally placed at the end of the appropriate series or subseries.

The majority of the prints and negatives are contact sheets or strips mounted on paper; these frequently have notes from the College identifying them and have thus been retained exactly as they came to MASC.

Other Finding Aids note

The College of Engineering and Architecture used a FileMaker Pro database to store information on these photographs, at least through the end of the 1980s. As MASC lacks the ability to access FileMaker Pro files, an archival copy of this is held in MASC's digital archives, and an Excel version has been stored there as well. It is suggested that people looking for specific names conduct keyword searches in that, find the appropriate subject area and dates in the spreadsheet, and then browse the collection. That title database, in Excel format, is available online.

General note

Due to the sheer volume of this collection, slides have been retained in the sheets/mounts in which they came from the College. The plastic in many of these is beginning to degrade, and is slightly sticky. When money and time are available, the slides in this collection need to be moved to archival holders.
