Content DescriptionReturn to Top

The collection consists of one photograph album in which, it is believed, University of Idaho student Elva Reid affixed photographs of her class and dormitory mates, friends, and family. Miss Reid also affixed photographs of the University of Idaho campus landscape and buildings, as well as places she visited while on outings or vacation. Miss Reid wrote captions for many of the photographs.

Miss Reid’s hometown was Colfax, Washington, and she resided in Forney Hall, a women’s dormitory on the Moscow campus. She was active in athletics, belonging to the Women’s Athletic Association and the women’s “I” and rifle clubs. She also belonged to the Episcopal Club. Miss Reid was graduated from the University on June 11, 1928, with a Bachelor of Arts, College of Letters and Science.
