Blue phones at Yale date back to 1991, but today they number more than 400. The phones are a ubiquitous feature across campus, from the athletic fields to the medical school to Yale-owned apartments in East Rock.

They are oft-seen and usually ignored, but one photographer made it his mission to track down all of them. He captured all but one, to which he did not have ID access.

    NEW BLUES:.
    This article doesn’t tell me what Blue Phones ARE?.
    Are they a predecessor to cell phones?.
    For muggings and robberies, etc., I propose all student cell phones be linked to Yale Police Department with a single digit activation code, and a GPS locator.
    Call them NEW BLUES
