Recreating Campus Scenes: Tennessee Tech's Campus Then and Now

PS_029_005_Administration Buildings_ c. 1925.jpg

Tennessee Tech's campus has grown exponentially since its inception as the University of Dixie in 1909. Construction brings new buildings to campus and existing buildings undergo name changes. Documented in this exhibit are some of the buildings on campus and a brief history of those buildings. You may notice that some buildings are named after people, and on these occasions the building histories will tell you who the person was and their affiliation with the university. Like the ever changing scenery at Tennessee Tech, this exhibit will grow as more archival photographs are digitized from our collections. 

Recreating Campus Scenes: Tennessee Tech's Campus Then and Now showcases archival photographs from the Photo Services collection dating from 1919 to the 1980s. This exhibit also includes pictures taken by the students of HIST 3420: Archive Management and Research taught during the Spring semester of 2023 by University Archivist Megan Atkinson. The pictures are recreations of photographs located in Tennessee Tech Archives' Photo Services photographs.
