About this collection

This collection contains images from the University Archives during the period that Idaho State University was the University of Idaho-Southern Branch, 1927-1947.

As the institution continued to move from technical and vocational emphasis to traditional academic courses, it was associated with the State University and the name was changed to the Southern Branch of the University of Idaho, commonly referred to as "The Branch" or often as "The Twig."

The 1930's brought even more expansion to the campus. A new Student Union and a girl's dormitory named Gravely Hall were constructed. Funds from the Public Works Administration (PWA) helped with building the Vo-Tech building and athletic stadium, otherwise known as the "Spud Bowl." (Matthew H. Shugert, student C.P.I., ISU Special Collections and Archives, 2013-2014)

This digital collection was completed by Alexander H. Asay, intern, ISU Department of History, Summer 2016.
