Album comprises 18 campus views, 8 portraits of staff and local characters, one portrait of the photographer and seventy-seven portraits of students and faculty. Portraits of class members were probably taken in the fall of 1860 and printed over the winter of 1860-1861; negatives of faculty, campus characters and scenes may date from as early as 1858, when Warren first photographed at Williams for the yearbook of 1859.
