Processing Information

Photographs are arranged by both subject matter and date. The naming convention of each photo denotes its subject in a descending order, first specifying whether the photo is agricultural, academic, or miscellaneous in nature, and then going into further description from there. Some of the agricultural photos are loosely described because it is uncertain whether the men pictured are students, faculty, or share croppers. Many of the photographs were undated, though an approximate date could be set based off of the buildings, clothing, and other photographic indicators.
