Overview: Collection of 231 postcards, collected by Thomas T. Winant, chiefly depicting exteriors of Harvard and Radcliffe buildings, as well as Harvard landmarks, Cambridge views, and Harvard's graduate schools. Most of the postcards are blank, but some were mailed and contain writing. Postmarks for the latter suggest that the bulk dates from 1904 to 1908; however, there are about 20 postcards that are probably from the 1990s.
