Phi Kappa Phi, an all-discipline honorary society, established a chapter at Oregon Agricultural College in 1924. Initial inductees included President William Jasper Kerr and long-time Board of Regents member James K. Weatherford. The group is standing in front of the College Library (now Kidder Hall).
This greenhouse complex was part of an expansion of college agricultural facilities that began in 1889. Standing on the right is George Coote, instructor in horticulture. The Administration Building (Benton Hall) is in the background.
OSU's new Kerr Library was constructed in 1962 and 1963. One of the features of the building was a series of tile mosaic murals throughout the building. OSU art faculty member Nelson Sandgren created the murals. The mural in this photo was located on the third floor of the library. Parts of this mural remain on the third floor of the Valley Library.
A May Day pageant was one of OAC's traditions in the early 20th century. The queen and king of this May Day celebration were Marie Cathey and Charles Watts, seen in the center of the photograph. The pageants were typically held on the lawn to the southeast of the Administration Building (Benton Hall).
