Biographical Note

Richard W. Gilkey attended Oregon State College from 1948 to 1953 and earned his BS in Science Education in 1951 and MS in Education in 1953. He was one of the first student photographers to document campus life in an official university capacity; many of his photographs were published in the Beaver yearbooks and Oregon Stater alumni magazine. He also worked as a stringer photographer for the Oregon Journal newspaper in Portland. He co-founded with other students, the Memorial Union Camera Club, which held an annual Spring Salon.

Gilkey was Supervisor of Audiovisual Education for the Portland Public Schools beginning in 1966 and Director of Educational Media from 1972 until his retirement in 1993.

The Archives developed an exhibit of his work that was held on campus in 2005 during the Golden Jubilee reunion weekend.

Content Description

The Richard W. Gilkey Photographs consist of images made by Gilkey during his student years at Oregon State College. The photographs provide extensive documentation of student life and campus activities and include images of athletic facilities, events, athletes, and coaches; clubs, student organizations, fraternities, and sororities; dances and special events in the Memorial Union, such as the annual Christmas party; drama productions; student outings, such as canoeing on the Marys River; homecoming events; and commencement.

The collection includes images of the exteriors and interiors of many campus buildings. The Memorial Union, Library (Kidder Hall), Gill Coliseum, and Sackett Hall are well represented.

Of special note are a series of portraits of nine faculty made by Gilkey that were published as covers of the Oregon Stater alumni magazine in 1952-1953. Prints of these images made by Gilkey in 2005 are part of the collection. The Gilkey Photographs depict many students at Oregon State during the late 1940s and early 1950s; some, but not all, of the images of students are identified with their names.

Many of Gilkey's photographs were published in the Beaver yearbook, Oregon Stater alumni magazine, and Barometer campus newspaper as well as Paste Up at "State", the Tech Record, and Memorial Union and student organization publications. Paste Up at "State" was a pictorial magazine about students and student activities published by Oregon State students in November 1948.

The bulk of the collection is negatives. Most of the film negatives are 3.25 x 4.25 inches; the collection also includes 4x5 in negatives and a few individual frames of 120 film. Silver gelatin prints and digital prints are also part of the collection. Most of the prints were made in 2004-2005 for the exhibit.
