However, there are some earlier images ranging back to about 1940, and a few newer photos of the 17th Recon Squadron photo section reunions and the 5th Air Force Memorial Wall. A large number of these images were taken by Fred Hill himself.

Various photographs from the history of Eastern Oregon University. These begin with its first identity as Eastern Oregon Normal School from 1929-1939. Next came Eastern Oregon College of Education from 1939-1956. In 1956, "of Education" was dropped by the state, and it was simply Eastern Oregon College from then until 1973 when it became Eastern Oregon State College. It finally became Eastern Oregon University in 1997. However, currently the collection runs up until about 1995.
There are also some local area and Union County photographs, as well as more generalized Oregon state photographs from as early as the late 1800s or early 1900s.
