New Exhibit in Special Collections

A new exhibit in the windows of the Special Collections department on the library's second floor features images from the Idaho Statesman photograph collection. The collection contains over one million images and spans 1950-1993. The images were taken by photographers of the newspaper and cover a variety of subjects such as everyday life in Boise, city buildings and events, and activities at Boise State University.

Some of these pictures were printed in the newspaper, however, most of the collection has never been published. It is one of the most heavily used resources in Special Collections, and scholars and researchers have used the images in a variety of publications. This exhibit focuses on the early days of Bogus Basin, downtown Boise, Latino life in Idaho, the new Boise Junior College campus and Bronco athletics, and the YWCA.
