Melville S. Munro (1881-1945), a faculty member for more than three decades, made his most notable contributions to Tufts through his camera's lens. Munro was born in Charlestown, Massachusetts, on July 7, 1881. He graduated from Tufts College with a B.S. in electrical engineering in 1904. Following graduation, Munro was appointed as an assistant to the electrical engineering department. He became an instructor in the department in 1905 and was made a professor in 1913. During his thirty-seven years on the faculty, Munro worked as the college's official photographer, recording an almost complete pictorial history of campus and student life up until 1941.
