Date of Accession07 March 2012
Bio History Note

Ejenobo Oke - to become Professor of Art.

Archivist Note

Scott Eberly delivered the negatives to the Archives on request of Rita Schroll, 21 February 2012.

The images arrived with bug remains...perhaps the nooks and crannies of their encasements. They had been stored in a basement closet of the Administration Building.

Note a: Pictures and negatives were mixed up in file folders and the archivist had to do her best to sort and organize.  Before assuming a date, the researcher should verify information elsewhere.

Note b: The dates on the negatives might have been the date materials were submitted by the photographer or received by Public Relations and may not be the date that the picture was actually made.

More photographs exist than those that are described or identified.
