The Photograph Collection consists of thousands of images that document the history of La Salle from the early 20th century to the present.

The collection features both black and white and color images of campus scenes, buildings, university events, athletic teams, student organizations, classroom scenes, faculty and staff portraits, and more.

The bulk of the photographs were produced by the campus News Bureau, Athletics staff, Yearbook staff, or University Marketing and Communications. The collection includes some photographs that were donated by student organizations or individual members of the campus community.

Please see the Photograph Collection finding aid for an inventory.
