At the 1924 Vanderbilt University Commencement, alumnus and Board of Trust member Edward East Barthell presented an hour long program on the past few decades at Vanderbilt using glass slides with historical images of campus, alumni, and faculty. Barthell later donated hundreds of these slides, known today as lantern slides, to the university to be used for alumni gatherings and other events. Visit Special Collections and explore the old campus through these rare, historic images of the campus, university personalities, and buildings. Talk to be given by Teresa Gray.
