About this Collection

Historical Photograph Collection

This photograph collection presents digital images of North Park University and the Evangelical Covenant Church. More than 30,000 print images in the Covenant Archives and Historical Library (CAHL) recording the activities of the school and the denomination from 1885 to present are held by the F. M. Johnson Archives and Special Collections in Brandel Library on the campus of North Park University in Chicago, Illinois.


The University's photographs depict North Park campus and its institutions, North Park Theological Seminary, North Park College, a Junior College prior to 1956 and University starting in 1997, and North Park Academy, which closed its doors in 1969. They feature individuals who helped shape the institution, events and traditions, buildings and campus architecture since its founding in 1891.

Photographs of the Evangelical Covenant Church depict founders of the denomination, church members, leaders, missionaries, events, buildings, and activities both nationally and internationally.

The items in the photograph collection have been collected from individuals and offices of North Park University and the Evangelical Covenant Church and acquired through various donations.

Descriptive information of the photographs (dates, places, names, etc.) can be adjusted. We would appreciate hearing from you if you have comments about them. If you have any questions, or wish to make an appointment to visit or research, please contact the staff at or (773) 244-6224.
