Biographical Note

Sydney Trask attended Oregon Agricultural College for 2 academic years (1894/95 and 1895/96). The first year he studied the agricultural course and the second year the mechanical. He married Josephine A. (Josie) Moses in 1898. For the first few years following their marriage, they lived in several different Willamette Valley towns but returned to Corvallis where Trask was a businessman.

Before coming to Corvallis in about 1894, Trask had worked as a photographer for the railroad in eastern Oregon. S. E. Trask and Co. had a photographic studio "over the Post Office" [imprint on P096:250] in Corvallis probably during the late 1890s.

Trask was born in 1878 in Rockford, Illinois. As a boy he moved with his parents to Cascade Locks (Wasco County), Oregon. He moved to Pasadena, California, in late 1955 to be near his son and died there on 13 January 1956.

Content Description

The Sydney Trask Photograph Collection consists of images created and assembled by Trask and includes many notable images of Oregon Agricultural College buildings, campus views, classrooms, and laboratories during the 1890s thru 1910s. Images documenting instruction in engineering, home economics, industrial arts, photography, and agriculture as well as student activities and clubs including the Camera Club, band, military reviews, and literary societies are part of the collection. The collection also includes images of Corvallis businesses and structures such as the Carriage Factory, J.H. Harris General Store, the Benton County National Bank, and the Benton County Courthouse.

The collection includes 247 negatives and 182 prints. Most of the negatives are glass plates ranging in size from 4x5 to 8x10 inches. The bulk of the glass negatives (~200) are 8x10, 6.5x8.5, or 5x8 in plates. The collection also includes 25 nitrate negatives. Most of the prints in the collection have accompanying camera negatives; only about 25 prints do not have negatives in the collection. About half of the negatives (~120) do not have accompanying prints. Some prints that had been described previously as part of Harriet's Photograph Collection have been transferred into this collection.

A selection of images from the collection are available online in the Best of the Archives digital collection.
