The Glass Plate Negatives collection contains materials from 1904-1935, depicting events, students, and buildings at Vassar College. Most photographs were taken by E.L. (Edmund L.) Wolven.  Digitization of the Glass Plate Negatives collection was made possible by the Vassar Class of 1950.  

The digital project will be completed in a variety stages.  As of 2017, one-third of the glass plate negative collection has been digitized and made available, comprising more than 850 images. More than 2,000 additional images were digitized after this first stage, and will become available in coming months.
