Oberlin College Historic Portraits
About the Collection
This virtual collection brings together many College portraits. While the Oberlin College Archives has assumed responsibility for maintaining the digital presentation of this collection, the actual portraits are to be found throughout the College, and they are administered by a number of different administrative units. The Location, Repository, and Copyright fields in each record reports on these ownership distinctions among the portraits.
Technical Note: The digital images taken up to 2004 were captured in most cases using standard photographic or natural lighting and a digital camera. A cooling filter was then applied to many of the digital images to create an image that more closely matches the current physical presentation of the portraits.
