Searching the College Archives

The holdings of the Robert T. Ramsay, Jr. Archival Center are primarily searchable via the Archives' internally-accessible database. As work continues to allow the public access to search this resource, it currently remains only accessible to Archives staff. 

As a starting place for research, patrons may find it helpful to review the following folder-level inventories of a portion of the Archives holdings. These inventories represent only a fraction of the department's holdings (less than 20%) but provide insight into some of the earliest college records and materials (e.g. correspondence, manuscripts, ephemera, etc.) held by the department. 

Select materials are available via the Archives' digital collections. See the Digital Collections page for more information and access along with information on the Archives' blogs.

For general questions about the department's holdings or specific inquiries about materials listed in the following inventories, please contact the Archives at or reach out to specific department staff.
