Collection Overview

Biography / History
The creator of the University of Kentucky campus scenes scrapbook cannot be determined with certainty, but based on the time period and subject of many of the photographs, as well as newspaper clippings and memorabilia the creator was most likely a 1912 graduate of the College of Mechanical Engineering. E.J. (Emanuel Joseph) Kohn is a good candidate for the album creator given that he is featured in several of the photographs and clippings. Kohn was a member of the track team, the Engineering honorary society Tau Beta Kake, and was also on the Kentuckian (yearbook) staff. He graduated with a degree in Mechanical Engineering in 1912.
Scope and Content
The University of Kentucky campus scenes scrapbook contains fixed and loose photographs of campus buildings, athletics teams, student outings and events, as well as a few newspaper clippings, an itinerary for (and photographs of) the 1912 College of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering (CMEE) senior inspection trip to Chicago, dance cards for two CMEE social events, copies of the Daily Bushwa a satirical, tongue-in-cheek student-run circular, and a 1912 commencement program from the University of Kentucky, then called the State University of Kentucky. The materials date mostly from 1911-1912, but there is one loose photograph dated 1914, and two photographs of an unidentified man from circa 1950s-1960s.
Several of the photographs in this album can also be found in the 1912 Kentuckian, and some have also been framed out with instructions for cropping and outlining. Consultation of the 1912 Kentuckian provides context for many of the photographs, which are largely un-labeled, including those of a mock headstone and funeral procession for "Willis E. Smith."
