Scope of Collection

This collection includes black and white photographs taken by Elie Shneour '47 during the years 1943-1948. This collection offers a snapshot of Bard during and immediately after WWII. Included are some of the first images of women at Bard, as the college became coed in 1944 causing it to break its ties with Columbia University. Other items of interest include aerial shots of the campus, theatrical and musical events, dance parties, conferences, and portraits of individuals who made Bard such a vibrant community. The images were scanned directly from negatives found in the Bard Archives.
