Description

This year marks the 175th anniversary of the founding of the University of Notre Dame. To celebrate this milestone, Charles Lamb and Elizabeth Hogan, both photograph archivists for the University, have chosen 175 images that illustrate the evolution of campus culture and its physical environment. Important pieces of Notre Dame’s rich history are highlighted, along with depictions of everyday life on the beautiful campus. Each image is accompanied by a caption explaining why it is historically and artistically significant. Lamb and Hogan have taken care to find images that have not been featured in previous pictorial collections; even longtime and diehard Notre Dame fans will find new and unexpected images here.

From a photo of a baseball game in 1888 on Brownson Field, to one of iconic chemistry professor Emil T. Hofman strolling with his students in 1983, to the photo of the spontaneous mass held on South Quad on September 11, 2001, and with a foreword by current University President Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., the treasures found in Notre Dame at 175 will fascinate and engage the entire Notre Dame family of students, faculty, staff, alumni, and fans, as well as amateur and professional photographers, historians, and art historians.
