About this collection

Maryland’s oldest HBCU, Bowie State University, emerged in its present location in 1910 when the state department of education agreed to support the school. The images seen in this collection date from that time to the present. The school was built on the site of Jericho Farm, and the farmhouse served to house students who also worked for their board on the farm. The school slowly grew into the University it is today, uniquely documented through the images depicting changes and growth over most of the 20th century.
