In some places, collegiate life and so-called "town-gown" activities and relationships are well-documented. The University of Wisconsin is just such a place, and recently the University of Wisconsin's Digital Collections group placed a cornucopia of photographic material online related to just this subject. The Meuer Photoart Collection draws on the work on local photographer William J. Meuer. Meuer and his brother, Roman, opened their photography business on Madison's State Street in 1916. Over a period that spanned forty years, Meuer took photographs of hundreds of faculty members at the University and documented lectures, social events, intramural and informal sporting events, and dramatic presentations. Currently, visitors can page through the first eight volumes of this twenty-five volume collection or they may also search the text of these albums for items of note.
