Saint Louis University Libraries Digital Collections

About this collection

The Saint Louis University Archives contains over 250,000 images, dating from the early nineteenth century to the present. The library has digitized thousands of photographs and is compiling them into a searchable digital collection.

 

This collection includes not only photographs, but pamphlets, drawings, newspapers, and other archival materials.  It covers a very wide range of topics, but with special focus on the Jesuits, SLU student life, aviation, Parks College, soccer, and other sports.

 

NEW: Rita G. Adams Photographic Collection:  Rita Adams, a SLU graduate and former History department staff member, compiled over 1,200 images over the course of her research on Saint Louis University and the St. Louis area.  Many of these went into her 1968 book, Saint Louis University: 150 Years, which is available in our digital collections.  Adams' collection of historic photos is an excellent resource on the history of SLU in the 19th and early 20th centuries, and it now is being added to this collection. It has been sorted according to the same categories she used.  The first series is alphabetical, the rest are in chronological order:

  1. Individuals
  2. Jesuit Groups
  3. Old St. Louis
  4. SLU Athletics
  5. Student Activities
  6. Other Colleges, Churches, & Medical Buildings
  7. Saint Louis University
  8. Miscellaneous
  9. Unidentified
  10. Miscellanaeous Added Photos

The Archives Image Collection is an ongoing project. Additional images are continually being digitized and added to the collection, so please check back often for updates.
