    The Terry and Paula Connors Photograph Collection, part of The University of Scranton’s Special Collections, documents the work of Scranton freelance photographer Terry Connors. The collection includes photographic negatives of the events, places and people of The University of Scranton community, as well as the Scranton community at large. The Connors Collection has been an ongoing processing and digitization project for the Weinberg Memorial Library since 2008.

    In celebration of the recent 2018 Inauguration of Rev. Scott R. Pilarz, S.J., as the 27th President of the University, Digital Services decided to take a look back by digitizing Connors’ photo negatives from Father Pilarz’s first Inauguration as the 24th President, which took place on Friday, Sept. 26, 2003. This particular set of negatives from the collection comprises approximately 700 photos and documents the ceremony and other campus events of that historic week, as well as the numerous students, faculty, clergy, dignitaries and others who were in attendance.
