Content and structure elements

Scope and content

This series largely consists of class composites (including photographic negatives of class composites) from the Kansas State University College of Veterinary Medicine between 1907 and 2004. The name of this department has changed since it was founded in 1905, which is reflected in the labels of this series’ contents. This series includes class composites of the KSU Veterinary Division between 1907-1931, the KSU Division of Veterinary Medicine between 1932-1942, the KSU School of Veterinary Medicine between 1944-1963, and finally the KSU College of Veterinary Medicine between 1965-2004. This series also contains a faculty composite of the KSU School of Veterinary Medicine between 1945-1949, as well as a class composite from the St. Joseph Veterinary College class of 1911.
