The burning of the Furman Bell Tower, the scarlet fever quarantine of 1906, the May Day pageants of Greenville Woman’s College – all this and more can be found in the new “Furman Historical Images” digital collection. Spanning 150 years, the collection contains nearly 2800 photographs and glass plate negatives of Greenville Woman’s College, Furman’s old downtown campus, and the construction of Furman’s current campus. The images have been digitized from materials in Special Collections and Archives. Although they have been available online for over 5 years, the images now include detailed descriptions created by Rick Jones, Digital Collection Center Manager, and Kathie Sloan, Digital Projects Specialist. The descriptions identify the people, places, and situations of the photographs, and enhance the searchability and usability of the collection.
