The Postcard Collection Archive contains over 150 postcards with subjects ranging from the early days of Elon College to photographic postcards of Elon alumni. The collection is housed in the Carol Grotnes Belk Library Archives and Special Collections. Postcards comprising this collection were obtained mostly through donations. The bulk of this collection features historic buildings and areas of Elon's campus that have changed dramatically over time or are no longer exist.
The postcards offer several different campus images, some of which include aerial views of campus and individual buildings. In addition to campus postcards, the collection also has unique greetings postcards, and images of important buildings in the surrounding area that were a huge part of the Elon College campus at one point in time, such as the Dairy Barn and Elon Homes for Children. Some postcards also have hand-written correspondence from people who shared close connections and ties to Elon College. Historical notes are provided for each postcard and pertain to the image on the front of the postcard. The dates of each postcard range from the early to late 20th century. The front and back sides of the postcards were scanned for viewing purposes.
