Abstract

The Northwestern University Alumni Association began publishing the Alumni News in November 1921. The publication was created with a two-fold purpose: "first, to represent and reflect your (alumni) opinions of all things pertaining to the University plans, policies and existence; and second, to inform you as to what is going on in the University and among your fellow alumni. " Each folder typically contains negatives and contact sheets for photographs that appeared in the Alumni News. Some folders also contain photographs. Many of the photographs were taken by Alice Snyder, editor of the Alumni News at the time.

Arrangement Note

The folders are arranged in rough alphabetical order by subject.
