Students/Alumni Records (University of Maine). Class of 1876 Photograph Album

Identifier: UA RG 0010-036

Scope and Contents

A photograph album primarily containing carte-de-visite, calling card style portrait style photographs and tintypes. The photographs would likely have been exchanged with classmates and friends. The photographs are of members of the Maine State College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts (now known as the University of Maine) Class of 1876 and also of non-students, such as older couples and children. The photographs appear to have been taken by different photographers and in different states in some cases (one loose photograph is from Pensacola, Florida).

There appear to be three sets of handwriting in the album, including contemporary notes and some subsequent, more modern, notes were added to the album both in pencil and ballpoint point, replicating what is written on the back of the photographs.
