Biography/History

The University of Kentucky in Lexington, KY is a land grant institution founded in 1865. The University evolved through three stages before becoming the University of Kentucky in 1916: the Agriculture and Mechanical College of Kentucky University, 1865-78, a private, denominational institution in Lexington created by an act of the legislature on February 22, 1865; the Agriculture and Mechanical College of Kentucky, 1878-1908; and State University, Lexington, 1908-1916. A statute in 1916 changed the name to University of Kentucky.

Scope and Content

The Collection on University of Kentucky postcards includes 154 postcards, including duplicates, of campus buildings and grounds, people, events, and off-campus properties administrated by the university.
