Photographs for the exhibit come in large part from the college library's Special Collections and consist predominantly of images from the collections of Harry Philip Fischer, a graduate of Marietta Academy, Class of 1896, and Stephen Durward Hoag, a member of the Marietta College, Class of 1923. Both were active photographers of the Marietta area.
