Small Photo Collections: James Harry Cowan scrapbook

The James Harry Cowan photograph scrapbook is a unique document, and uniquely presented. Each page contains multiple photographs of student life at UA — especially athletics — about a hundred years ago. In Acumen, when you click on the thumbnail for each page, it opens into its own browser window. That way you can see each of the photographs individually and up close, as well as the page as a whole.

Game day!
