This collection is comprised of snapshots taken when the University of Maryland awarded Julie Andrews an honorary Doctorate of Fine Arts on June 6, 1970, for her award-winning stage and screen musical performances. The photographs include some taken at Commencement as the degree was conferred; most were taken at a luncheon. Among those photographed with Andrews are her husband, Blake Edwards, President Wilson H. Elkins, State Comptroller Louis L. Goldstein, and historian John Hope Franklin, another honorary degree recipient. A preliminary inventory is available and can be found in the "Additional Description" section of this finding aid.
