St. John's College History Collection
The scope of the materials in this collection is focused on St. John’s College, Annapolis, particularly related to its functions, activities, and perceptions of St. John’s College in the news media. Records include items such as correspondence with public figures, planning notes for public activities, newspaper clippings about the College, essays and published materials, along with some assorted ephemera. While the bulk of the materials are from the 20th century, some items date back into the 18th and 19th century. Because of the breadth of time covered by the collection, many important cultural and educational milestones are represented in the materials. It is also worth noting that the St. John’s College Santa Fe campus is occasionally mentioned in these records, though it is not the focus of the collection.
Items are arranged in series by type of record (such as Correspondence) or subject matter (such as 275th Anniversary).
Almost all of the materials pertaining to the history of St. John’s College prior to 1900 are housed at the Maryland State Archives. For permission to access to these collections see the Director of the St. John’s College Greenfield Library. The St. John’s College archives collections also include materials related to: commencement; admissions; Dr. Richard Weigle; Hector Humphrey; other college officials, etc. These materials are housed in separate collections but may also be useful to consult.
