College Archives

The College Archives is the repository for non-current Hampshire College records having permanent, historical, legal, fiscal, or administrative value. The archives also holds Div IIIs as well as professional and personal papers of some faculty and alumni.

Where is the College Archives?

At this time, the College Archives does not have a formal reading room. The archival holdings are dispersed throughout the ground and 3rd floor of the library.  The office of the College Archivist, Jessica C. Neal, is located on the 1st floor of the Harold F. Johnson Library. The Special Collections are located on the 2nd floor in the Bradford Room. The Special Collections are best known for art and rare literary materials. If you want to research people and places not necessarily related to the College, the Special Collections may have material of interest to you.
