Collection:
Ott Historical Photograph Collection

Published by

A digital collection comprised of historical photographs of Moscow, Idaho and the surrounding Latah County. The photos were collected by Clifford M. Ott and donated to the University of Idaho Library in 1992. Mr. Ott was an avid amateur photographer who amassed over 10,000 slides, prints, and negatives spanning the years from 1883 to 1990. Ott compiled a selection from his collection into eleven albums containing a total of over 1,800 images of Moscow, Idaho and surrounding Latah County. These scrap books contain photos as well as newspaper clippings, and historic footnotes. Clifford Ott used these scrapbooks, and other slides and negatives, to give talks to senior groups about Latah County history.
