Images of St. Olaf College and Northfield, Minnesota

The Shaw-Olson Center (College Archives) maintains an archival collection of thousands of photographs. Most of these images portray the college, its faculty and students, its alumni and campus visitors, and its Northfield setting. Scans of a selection of photos that depict the college and the Northfield community from the 1870s through the 1920s may be accessed on this site. Many of these images were created by Ole Felland (1853-1938), an early faculty member and college librarian. These images may not be downloaded or copied, but reproductions may be ordered via an e-mail to one of the college archivists. Fees are generally charged for reproductions.
