Pratt Institute Archives Negatives Collection


The Pratt Institute Archives Negatives Collection consists of black and white negatives produced by the Pratt Institute Photo Lab for use in Institute publications and external public relations. Dating largely from the late 1950s through the mid-1970s, this collection provides valuable insights into student life and Institute activities at the time. The negatives depict events; clubs and athletics; students, faculty, and administrators; classes and student work; and the campus. The negatives are being scanned as contact sheets for reference purposes; high resolution scans of specific images can be requested by emailing
