The Albion State Normal School was established by an Act of the Idaho Legislature on March 7, 1893. On September 11, 1894, the Normal School opened with a student population of twenty-six and offered a two-year teacher training program. In 1947, it was renamed the Southern Idaho College of Education (SICE) and began awarding baccalaureate degrees. When the Normal School closed in 1951, its responsibilities were transferred to Idaho State College in Pocatello.
The collection consists of correspondence, student files (the bulk of the collection), ledgers, cards, course catalogs, commencement programs, certificates, diplomas, photographs, grade books, and memorabilia covering the period c. 1894 through 1952. The photographs have been digitized and are presented here; we need your help with identifying buildings, locations, events, people, and dates. Please add tags to the images or leave appropriate comments. We will be adding more materials to this collection in the near future.
