The Rogues Gallery Images collection contains the scanned images of the University historical pictures from 1887 to 2000. The physical images, encased in glass, are lining the first two floors of College Hall, formerly the Administration Building. These images document Gonzaga's history from its beginning. The images show events, organizations, athletic groups, and individuals. Most images have been identified. Additional and / or better quality photographs might be available at Foley Center Library in the University Archives & Special Collections Department.
The Rogues Gallery began to be available on the Administration Building walls in 1911 and has been maintained over the years by John Dunne, Campus Photographer; Father Leo Yeats, S. J., Public Relations Director and later Vice President; Father Arthur L. Dussault, S. J., and finally by Alumni Director Marty Pujolar.
Each original photo has been removed from its case in a chronological order. They are then scanned and replaced with high-resolution digital prints. The originals are stored in the Special Collections vault for safekeeping. The photograph's labels are retyped and used for its metadata. Each image in each case is given a unique identification number based upon the case year and number in the case.
You can search by word to find a specific person, topic, event or year.
