The physical collection consists of more than 11,000 positive and negative images produced by the Cooperative Extension Service and South Carolina Agricultural Experiment Station from the 1920s until the 1970s. A few images made before 1930 were not produced by the Service but were acquired and maintained with the collection. Many of the images appeared in publications issued by the Extension Service.
The bulk of images documents activities relating to agriculture; the remainder relates to
economic development, home demonstration, and Clemson College. Pictures of Extension
Service personnel are included in this series. This is an ongoing digital collection, with photographs being added over time.
