About the collection

From the Collection:

This collection consists of materials documenting the development of the Connecticut College campus, including architectural plans, correspondence, financial information, fundraising, grant applications, building specifications, planning records, and press coverage. Of particular note is a series of correspondence between early College administrators, trustees, and architects regarding the planning and opening of the College (see Series I: Campus planning).

This collection is an artificial collection. Some material was collected by Gertrude Noyes in preparation for her manuscript, A History of Connecticut College (1982). Additional material was collected by various College departments over several decades. Significant correspondence was generated by many college presidents and was collected and arranged in this collection.
