Content DescriptionReturn to Top

The Hugh C. Currin Photograph Collection consists of 12 images of the Oregon Agricultural College campus, military cadets, and athletic teams assembled by Currin, primarily during his student years in the early 1900s. All of the images are mounted prints and all are individually numbered (P168:01 - P168:12).

The collection includes photographs of several campus buildings: Benton, Cauthorn (now known as Fairbanks), Agriculture (now Education), Alpha, and Mechanical (now Kearney) Halls. Two images of military cadet reviews are part of the collection; both images include the cadet band. One of these images shows the residential area adjacent to lower campus. Another image depicts a group of young men (probably cadets) with rifles, perhaps at an encampment.

Several of the images in the collection depict athletic teams and events. These include the 1906 football team, a football practice, and a football game with the University of Washington. A group photograph of the women's basketball team and one of the 1904 men's basketball team are also included.

Three of the photos were made by W.G. Emery and one by Chester Coffey.
