THE RECORDS OF University Public Relations in the University Archives
Virginia Union University

June 2001

This collection is made up of black and white photographs and a few slides documenting university activities, events and people, primarily from the 1960s. Most of the photos are credited to Scott Henderson, the university’s unofficial photographer. Many of these photos were used in catalogues, bulletins, the school newspaper and special publications.

The dates span 1941-1970; the collection is 2 l.f. The photos came to the archives in broken down boxes, some within manila envelopes with minimal or no labeling. The photos have been reorganized into folders alphabetically by subject, then chronologically.

There are no restrictions on this collection. However, since most of the photos have credit lines on them (Henderson and other photographers), the reproduction of these photos should be with the understanding that the families of these photographers must give copyright approval. Henderson’s nephew is the contact for his copyright approval (see Archivist).
