Radcliffe Day, May 31, 2013

May 13, 2013

Radcliffe Day is a time of celebration—a time especially to celebrate Radcliffe College alumnae. In tribute, we highlight some of the popular digital resources from the Radcliffe College Archives. Over time the Library has digitized thousands of photographs and hundreds of publications, making the material accessible online to be enjoyed by alumnae and scholars alike. These sources provide important historical documentation of college administration, student life, and alumnae activity.
