About the Digital Photographs Collection:
The Storer College Digital Photographs Collection includes over 600 images that document the school from its creation just after the end of the Civil War to its dissolution in 1955. These remarkable photographs provide a glimpse of buildings, class projects, sporting events and student life in general on the campus. Also included are portraits of students, graduating classes, faculty and staff members, musical ensembles and student veterans among others. Additional identification and descriptive information for the photographs is welcome. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to provide details.
These images originate from the WVRHC’s Storer College archives and manuscripts collections and the Center’s photograph and postcard collections.

This online collection also does not include other types of materials, such as student records, financial reports, or correspondence that can be found in the Storer College archive and manuscript collections held at the WVRHC.
