Biographical notes:

In 1919 Edward Bushnell was appointed publicity agent for the University of Pennsylvania. His appointment began a long and expanding effort at public relations at the University. In 1954 the Department of Public Relations expanded its work to include two new units, Motion Picture Services and the Office of Radio and Television. These two offices operated until 1975 when they were phased out of a stream-lined department.

The majority of the University Scrapbook Collection was created by George E. Nietzsche at the beginning of the twentieth century in his capacity as Publicity Agent and later Recorder of the University of Pennsylvania. Nietzsche became the head of the Bureau of Publicity in 1904 and was created Recorder in 1912, a position he held into the 1940s. The scrapbooks that Nietzsche assembled eventually became part of the Memorial Library of Publications of the University of Pennsylvania and Her Sons which was established in 1907 which later formed a core portion to the University Archives in 1945.
