C. Hadley Smith's photographs of Ithaca College from 1950 into the 1980's. All of the images in this collection were taken by Mr. Smith and he generously donated them to Ithaca College. This collection of images is of Ithaca College: our people, our places and our events. Of particular importance to the College is the transition from the downtown campus to the new campus and recognition that this campus has grown and changed and been transformed since 1960. Beyond the specific history of the College, this collection holds a visual slice of American history through the people it portrays.
