Scope and content
James McNally collected photographs, both black-and-white and color, that depict buildings and Grinnell scenes from about 1857-1961. The collection of photographs has been donated to Stewart Library.
Copies of outstanding and representative pictures in the collection were made into slides and the slides donated to the archives. Vera provided the descriptions of the photographs in 1983. There are two sets of slides: the original slides and another set that are loaded into a carousel. The latter set may be borrowed with approval of the College Archivist.
