Photos from the University Archives

I was reading through this week’s Insights Weekly (see Amy L’s previous post) and I came across a really cool link with pictures of UMBC from the 1960’s, 70’s, and 80’s.  See the following from Insights Weekly for details:

The Special Collections department is currently testing out a new way to gather information on unidentified photographs and expose our alumni and the greater University community to our historical holdings. Using the Albin O. Kuhn Library & Gallery’s newly established Flickr page (http://www.flickr.com/photos/umbclibrary/), we have added University Archives photographs that feature UMBC students in the 1960s, ‘70s, and ‘80s, including photos from the 1967 Convocation ceremony, Theatre department photographs and general student life shots. Flickr allows anyone to leave a note or comment with information or reflections on the people, places and events shown in the photographs.

Here is a sample of one of the pictures (click on the link above or the picture below for the Flickr gallery):
