The Archives

The Archives actively collect and preserve source materials for the documentation and study of all aspects of the school's long and rich history, from the founding of our parent institutions, Williston Seminary (1841) and Northampton School for Girls (1924), to the present day. The Archives are valuable not only as a repository of documents and memorabilia, but as a teaching resource. They are a means through which our students, alumni, and faculty can come to appreciate the values and traditions which have shaped the school we know today.

The Archives seek school documents and memorabilia of all kinds. We are especially interested in student journals and letters, academic work, photographs, and much more. We'd also like to fill gaps in certain school publications, notably many issues of the Northampton School Annual Catalogue, Pegasus, Venturer’s Field, and The Willistonian. Please don't let these important pieces of our history be lost to future generations!

If you have material you would like to share, or stories to tell, please contact Archivist Richard Teller '70 at (413) 529-3288.
