Photos from the past

Do you have a box of old photos in the closet -- class pictures, famiy reunions, favorite pets -- that you really will organize some day?

Stanford Photo had many, many, many cartons full of old Stanford athletic photos. Last summer, David Gonzales and his staff and some volunteers began the task of identifying them, sorting them and scanning them into their digital photography archives.

Lat week they finished a major part of the project -- the photos prior to 1998 -- which included 637 women's basketball photos, as far back as 1978 mug shots. These are some of my favorites -- old photos of Pac-10 coaches:

To find photos of your favorite player, search Stanford Photo for her name. Or look her up in the FBC's alphabetical or chronological "Where Are They Now?" file.
