This Series is comprised of photos from the National High School Institute summer programs in Business, Education, Engineering, Journalism, Music and Speech. The bulk of the photos date from the years 1950-1970. There are class photos for many of the years. There are also photos of students in the classroom, in the lab, and on trips into the city of Chicago. The photos are organized first alphabetically by program, then chronologically, then by size of photos. Photographs of individual participants (usually small, identification-size shots) have been categorized as “Portraits.” Most of these have the individual's name pencilled on the reverse.
