Greenville Woman's College May Day Court, ca. 1930
From the Glass Plate Negative Collection

The images listed below were re-acquired by the University from the Greenville Historical Society in the late 1990s, and have been the focus of several student projects since that time. In 2006, students from the Communications honor society LPE sorted and re-housed the images in acid-free boxes. In Spring 2011, Matthew Sohner selected, inventoried, and digitized a selection of the images during an internship for Dr. Courtney Tollison's Experiential Learning in Local History class.

Matthew Sohner's selected inventory is listed below. Further images from the Glass Plate Negative Collection are listed in the Greenville Woman's College images inventory.

Various digital images of the Glass Plate Negative collection can be viewed in Furman Glass Plate Negatives at the Digicenter. The complete collection can be viewed in Special Collections and Archives.
