Abstract:

The University of Maryland's student newspaper, originally known as The Triangle, was established in 1910. The paper underwent several name changes, including The M.A.C. Weekly, Maryland State Review, and University Review, before being renamed The Diamondback in 1921. This collection consists of over 18,000 photographs taken for the Diamondback newspaper, spanning from the 1960s through 2000s. The photographs document every aspect of campus life at Maryland -- faculty, staff, students, buildings and grounds, academics, athletics, performing arts, special events -- as well as the city of College Park and other topics of local or national interest.
