Scope and content

The Advertising Department photographs in this collection begin in the late 1940s. Images of classroom critiques and mock agency presentations from the mid-1950s-1960s make up the bulk of the collection. The most commonly pictured faculty in the images are Department Chair Harvey Thompson and instructor James Jordan. There are also images of students working on their advertising designs, many of which are hand-illustrated.

Examples of Student Work are primarily from the 1950s and 1960s, with early images including the student posed with their completed project. Overall changes in how advertising has been conveyed from the 1950s through the 1980s are well-documented; the earlier designs are nearly exclusively hand illustrated, while later advertisements (from about 1965 onward) almost all include photographs in the layout.
