The earliest photographs of UConn, held at the Dodd Research Center, were made by Harry L. Garrigus, UConn class of 1897 and instructor of animal husbandry. 500 of his glass plates dating from the late 1890s are now available online through UConn Libraries’ Digital Mosaic.  To browse the collection, select the Garrigus Photograph Collection and search.  UConn’s agricultural heyday and growth are documented, as well as early administrators, staff and townspeople.  We’re adding new images weekly, so check back with us for more.
