The Snyder Collection
Photographs of
Oxford and Miami University


Miami University Libraries' Archives house the Snyder Collection of photographs. Generously donated to the Universtiy Libraries by the Frank Snyder family of Oxford, Ohio, the collection includes approximately 2000 photos spanning 1897-1940. All photographs were taken by Frank Snyder, a prominent Oxford photographer and relative of the owners of the local Snyder's Camera Store.

The Snyder photos depict scenes and people from Oxford and Miami University and include many pictures taken for the Recensio, the Miami University Yearbook. Here is a small sample.


Photographs from this collection may be made for teaching and research purposes free of charge and without securing permission, as allowed by United States Copyright Law. For all other purposes permission must be obtained (contact Miami University Libraries).
