Arthur Evan Boss fonds

  • Fonds
  • 1917 - 1925

Fonds consists of an album created by former UBC student Arthur Evan Boss. It contains over 560 small black and white photographs of which approximately the first half relate to UBC and were taken between 1917 and 1924. The 232 UBC images include many views of students and student life at the original Fairview campus. As well as posed individual shots of students, there are many photographs of various student activities including the annual class picnic. Although there is limited duplication of images already in the Archives, the photographs are, for the most part, unique and a large majority of them have captions with enough information for identifying individuals. Images in the second half of the album are largely undescribed and undated, and do not seem to relate to UBC.
