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 were taken by employees of the Engineering Extension office, and document the programs, research, and day-to-day life of the faculty, students, and staff of the College of Engineering and Architecture. Many of the originals to photographs found in Quest and other Engineering and Architecture publications can be found within this collection.

Arrangement note

The photographs in this collection are maintained in their original order. This consists of one major chronological series of contact strips and negatives, followed by two smaller chronological series. These series are identified by the creators of those images: David C. Flaherty (Series 1), Brian T. Harvey (Series 2), or Harvey and Sue Ehrstine (Series 3).

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. Photographs prior to 1970 have little to no labeling.
