New (old) photos

This morning, while peeking into one of about thirty boxes of materials left by a former library staff member, I came across a folder of photographs donated to the library in 1984 by Mrs. Frank Queen. Frank had been a faculty member in the Department of Pathology at the University of Oregon Medical School for thirteen years in the 1940s and 1950s, and so the small collection includes two photographs of pathology faculty: one group shot, taken in December of 1946 (that's Frank in the front row, far right) and one of Warren Hunter, department chair, at the microscope.

Also included are five aerial shots of campus in the 1940s and 1950s. Having been liberated from the cardboard enclosure they sat in for the last 24 years, these photos will be sleeved and added to the Historical Image Collection.

(Identifications of individuals in group shot from the back of the print: L-R, front row: Henry Gong, Earl Lawson, George Hanks, Fred Coddington, Joe Hohlgren, Frank Queen. Back row: Tom Fuson, Emmanuel Bitar, William Terry, Winfried Herman, Leonard Jacobson (in white), C. Don Platner, Terence Cochran.)
