Are there any large, freely available (but not necessarily labeled) face datasets out there?

The ones I have seen usually range in the hundreds, but for unsupervised feature learning it would be desirable to have thousands if not tens or hundreds of thousands of images.

If the answer is no, what would be a good way of obtaining such a dataset? If the answer is yes, where do I find them and what have they been used for?

If you can handle unconstrained imaging conditions you should perhaps look at LFW and PubFig.

If you need controlled imaging conditions you should perhaps look at MultiPIE.
