Photos of University of Wyoming campus in 1965

Updated: Oct 31, 2021

[This page is full of old photographs. Please give it a minute to fully load.]


As I continue sorting and sharing a box of old slides that were given to me, here you'll find photos of various buildings on the University of Wyoming's campus as they were in 1965. The University of Wyoming is located in Laramie, Albany County, Wyoming. It is a public research university consisting of seven colleges. It all started in 1886, when the cornerstone of the "Old Main" was laid. It was made from local rough-cut sandstone, which would be used in nearly all the other buildings shown below.

Since these slides were unlabeled, in order to confirm they were part of the campus, I used Google maps and their Street View feature to locate the buildings, so I shared that below each photo below. Many of the buildings have changed very little, except the trees are taller, the cars are classics, and there are more buildings. Copies of these photos are available here, for those who are interested.
