Help solve campus history mysteries

THIS PHOTO was taken on campus in March 1967, but who are these people, what they are doing, and why?

This is one of more than 6,000 images documenting Portland State’s history that are now available online in the new University Archives Digital Gallery created by the PSU Library. Visit the website to browse photographs by date, name, location, or subject. The librarians and others have done their best to provide descriptive information, but if you know more, click on “Tell us!” under each image to send them a message.

University Archives will continue to add images as they are digitized and cataloged. Next up: photographs of campus life from the 1950s and over 500 images of Portland State athletics spanning three decades.
