The Alexander K. Chapman Photograph Collection consists of mounted photographic prints assembled by Chapman as a student at Oregon Agricultural College.

The Collection also includes several campus views and images of student groups and unidentified portraits by photographers in Grants Pass, Oregon. Of particular note is an image of an OAC cadet parade in downtown Corvallis.
