Russell Gerard Cresson, 1921 – 2017

Russell Gerard Cresson, for 40-years the official photographer of Loyola, passed away last month on April 23rd at the age of 96.

From 1949 until 1987, Cresson (also an alumnus of the University), documented Loyola’s campus, faculty, staff, students, and events. Much of this record is in our Loyola University Photographs Collection. Not all of our Cresson images have been digitized, but you can view the 8230 currently available through the Louisiana Digital Library.

We here in the Special Collections & Archives extend our deepest sympathies to Cresson’s family and friends and offer our sincere gratitude for his years of dedication to documenting the life of Loyola University.
