The University of Wisconsin-Madison Archives maintains a sizable collection of student (and student organization) scrapbooks and photo albums. Approximately 200 books total provide a unique view into the day-to-day lives of students on campus.
Compiled by both male and female students, from different decades, these books present photographs, ephemeral materials, newspaper clippings, souvenirs and academic documentation including dance cards, theatrical tickets and programs, party invitations, party souvenirs from social events, report cards, travel materials and tickets and more.
These materials offer insight into students’ lives on campus and around Madison — their traditions, celebrations, challenges (both academic and social), living conditions, and post-UW aspirations.
