Who is this? Crowdsourcing College History

Help identify people from Bowdoin’s past


Many photos in Bowdoin’s Historic Image Gallery feature former students, faculty, and staff of the College whose names we don’t know. Every photo in the Gallery has an “Identify People in this Photo” button you can use to help us improve our captions, helping future researchers find the images they seek.

Below are select photos that need identification. To identify someone, follow the steps below.

  1. Click the image.
  2. On the new page that opens, click  Identify people in this photo
  3. Complete and submit the form.
