The Maxwell D. Cohn collection consists mainly of photographs Cohn took while he was attending the Agricultural College of Utah in Logan, Utah between 1901 and 1902. These images (some of which were probably not taken by him) are excellent early illustrations of class-room scenes, cadet activities, scenic shots, and social events at the ACU. Most of the other photographs date from 1895 to 1905 and are of friends and relatives, Logan Canyon, the Hercules Power Company, Salt Lake City, and outdoor scenes from his family’s ranch near Arimo, Idaho.
Some of the photographs have faded but most are in good condition. Photographs 3:01:01-3:09:04 are located in box 2 (there is no box 3). Register completed by Camille Gooch, February 2001.
