Athletics at Duke University


The majority of the sports-related photographs available at the Duke University Archives are housed in five collections:

These collections may be reviewed in our reading room, where scanning equipment is available for your use at no charge. Additional fee-based reproduction services are also offered and recommended for scanning negatives.

Many of the photographs from these collections have been digitized and made available online as part of our Flickr photostream.

  • These may be downloaded directly from Flickr for private research, study, and teaching (with credit given to the "Duke University Archives").
  • Please contact us to request permission for other uses of these materials, such as in commercial products or for broadcast or publication.
