The latest webpage photos

You may have noticed the photographs on the lower left-hand side of the Library’s homepage. These photos are a sampling of the holdings in the campus archives and special collections at the Devereaux Library. Most recently scenes from M-Weeks past and present were displayed.

Currently, we are featuring images from the works of William J. Collins. For nearly 50 years, Mr. Collins operated a photography business in Rapid City recording views of his region and its people. The library has a small collection of his works. Collins photos are featured in the book, Black Hills, White Sky.
