Alma College fonds

  • Fonds
  • 1877-1997

Fonds consists of the records of the Alma College Board of Management, Council, Senate and Students' Council and includes correspondence, accounts, minutes, photographs, negatives, scrapbooks, student newspapers, yearbooks, programs and invitations to special events, blueprints and plans, and prospectuses. Scrapbooks, photograph albums and memorabilia kept by students and staff are also included. The fonds will be of particular interest to historians seeking information about Alma College in particular and about the administration, staffing, curriculum, academic standards and student life of Canadian and international women’s private boarding schools in general. The fonds will also interest students of denominational educational institutions in Canada, particularly those administered by the Methodist/United Church. Historians will also find the fonds useful for investigating the social history and commercial development of the city of St. Thomas and Elgin County, as the records provide voluminous information about local events, institutions, businesses and individuals through their interaction with Alma College and its students and staff. Genealogists seeking information about particular students and staff will find the student records and staff registers invaluable.
