Language of Materials



A collection of photographs, slides, and negatives, in both color and black and white, documenting Central Piedmont people (Students, Faculty, Staff, Administration, and Board of Trustees); Central Piedmont Campuses; and Central Piedmont events.


This collection is arranged into four series. Series I. Buildings, Series II. Educational Programs, Series III. Programs and Services, and Series IV. People.

Custodial History

College photographs were transferred to the archives in 2011 upon retirement of the college’s photographer, Tom Covington. More images, slides, and negatives were tranferred to the archives department between 2016-present by Chris Record and Darnell Vennie.


Future accruals are expected from the Marketing Department (CMPR) and the College Photographer. The photographs currently generated by CMPR are born-digital and will be listed as such in the finding aid upon processing.
