Historical Context

Starting in 1883 portraits of the graduating classes of Albany College of Pharmacy were taken. Individual photos were taken and assembled together in larger conglomerate groups. Some were labelled with the names of individuals and their positions within the College; some were not. More rarely, these portraits were taken as group shots. The 1930s saw the last of these commemorative portraits.
