Fordham, as Seen From the Archives

William Fox was a freelance photographer who worked in the 1930s and 1940s for Fordham during the Robert Gannon, S.J. administration, for upwards of 20 years. He left his negatives and photographs to Fordham’s library decades ago—coverage of commencements, campus architecture, student life, and more.

Some of the works taken in 1940-1941 are on display in a new summer exhibit, curated by Stephan Apicella-Hitchcock. He said he chose prints that, through surface fissures and bubbles, display the “flaws of the analog process” in contrast to “our digital age of precision and perfection.”

Below is an old print of a laboratory on the Rose Hill campus.
