The Library has just added a new series of nostalgic university photographs to its DePaul Heritage collections. Whether it’s the classroom, the dance floor or the basketball court, these historic images show Blue Demons in their natural habitats.

The original images are part of DePaul’s University Archives, and are a popular resource among students, alumni and staff. Most of these photographs are one-of-a-kind and, until now, could only be accessed in person in the Special Collections and Archives reading room. Staff from a number of Library departments worked together to identify, scan and catalog these historic DePaul images in order to bring them to the web, and to make them more accessible to the University community. With several download and printing options, you are free to search for and capture images for your DePaul newsletters, brochures, and other promotional materials.

Contact University Archives for information on how to cite the images you’ve downloaded, to obtain higher resolution images, or to see the original photographs. Happy browsing!
