Oswald Hurt Saunders collection

 Collection 0145-UA

Oswald Hurt Saunders graduated from the Maryland Agricultural College in 1910 with a degree in Civil Engineering. This collection contains the 1909 field book of Saunders, presumably kept for a class assignment, including maps and diagrams, statistics, elevation data for the athletic fields, and notations on land surveys taken around the College Park campus. Several other members of the Class of 1910 are listed in the field book as assisting Saunders in his survey: Herschel H. Allen, William P. Cole, William J. Frere, and Jackson P. Grason.
