Linda Kaye Collection

This collection consists of prints, negatives, contact sheets, slides, and digital images taken by TCU photographer Linda Kaye. Kaye took most of these photographs between the late-1970s and 2007. The majority of the photographs concern athletics in some way (team pictures, shots of individual athletes and coaches, game action, etc.) with campus scenes and other campus events rounding out the collection.

The Linda Kaye Collection has been digitized and is available in our digital repository.
