The Archival Photographic Files (the Photofiles) comprise more than 60,000 photographs documenting the history of the University of Chicago, its campus, academic programs, and community life. The Archival Photographic Files Digitization Project is a comprehensive effort to digitize and present on the Web all of the images in the collection. Initiated in February 2002, the first stage of the project provides digital images of photographs in Series II: Buildings and Grounds. Images in other Photofiles series documenting events, individuals, student activities, and sports will be digitized as the project continues.

The University of Chicago Library gratefully acknowledges the generous support of Leon and Marian Despres and the University of Chicago Women's Board in the development of the Archival Photofiles digital collection.
