The C. Elizabeth Boyd '33 Archives at Wilson College documents the history of the College from the time of its founding in 1869 to the present by collecting materials created by students, faculty, administrative and departmental staff, and alumnae/i. It serves as the official repository for the College’s records, including those that pertain to academic programs and courses of instruction, academic departments and committees, and administrative offices. Furthermore, the Archives collects a wide range of historical and biographical materials relating to alumnae and other individuals connected with the College. It holds historical artifacts and other research materials in support of the instructional programs of the College. The records in the Archives both provides researchers with answers to specific questions and helps them understand broader social and cultural issues.
