Bryn Mawr College Histories

Researching Bryn Mawr Histories

The Bryn Mawr College Archives holds many narratives of Bryn Mawr College, with an emphasis on its undergraduate life and alumnae/i. Encompassing more than 3 million items and over 2,000 linear feet, the collections in the College Archives document campus life and administrative decisions from 1885 to the present. This guide will help you get started researching the histories of the College.

Please note that not all finding aids or research guides for the College Archives have been digitized and much of our archives is not available online. If you have any questions or need assistance, please get in contact with the College Archivist or Special Collections staff.

Find more information about visiting Special Collections in person on our website: https://www.brynmawr.edu/lits/visit-special-collections.
