Photograph, Reference, Memorabilia, Media, and Diploma Collections document the history of Lafayette College.
Reel to reel films, audio cassettes, video cassettes, CDs, DVDs, and miscellaneous archival formats document Lafayette College events from the 19th century to the present. More than fifty oral history tapes document the social changes of the early 1970s with the arrival of the first women students and record numbers of African Americans. Over 2000 sports films date from 1937 through the last decade.
Freshman beanies, “L” sweaters, reunion sashes, sporting event medals and trophies, championship game footballs, and the Pardee Hall cornerstone box are all found within this collection of Lafayette College historical objects and ephemera.
