Historical Note

The material in this collection was preserved by Barton W. Edgerton, Class of 1928, Business Manager of the 1928 Olio. After Edgerton's death, his family returned the collection to the College.

Photographs used in the 1928 Olio are labeled. Other photographs taken by White Studio were apparently taken under contract with the Olio. However, since the collection contains some material from the 1926 Olio, it is not possible to assign precise dates to all materials.

Scope and Contents of the Collection

The collection consists of the original photographs and artwork used in the 1928 Olio, along with some material from the 1926 Olio and additional photographs taken by White Studio, apparently taken under contract with the Olio. Also included is correspondence related to the editorial and business matters of the Olio's editorial committee.

The collection is unsorted.
