Columbia University Archives

Graduate School of Business Photographs, 1954-2005, bulk 1980-2000

Series I: Buildings and Grounds

This series consists primarily of photographs of Columbia University's Morningside Heights campus and also includes images of New York City, especially the neighborhood around Columbia and the Financial District. There are a significant number of interior and exterior images of Uris Hall, the building that has housed the Business School since 1964. The construction and later renovation of Uris Hall in 1985 are extensively documented as well. The series is organized alphabetically according to the name of the location photographed.
