As the first maritime school in the country, founded in 1874, the college’s institutional records document the development of nautical education in the United States. The archives include college bulletins, yearbooks, administrative records, press coverage, scrapbooks, photographs, school and training ship records, student records, and more.
The college archives also hold the personal papers of graduates who went on to have distinguished careers in the maritime industry. Highlights include the papers of Malcolm Peters Nash (Class of 1887), Louis Weickum (Class of 1903), John S. Baylis (Class of 1903), and Arthur M. Tode (Class of 1912).
The intention of the Archives is to acquire and preserve born-digital records. However, decisions about accessioning electronic records will be made on a case-by-case basis while the appropriate infrastructure for ingesting and preserving such materials is developed.
Collection Development policies for the Archives and Special Collections will be reviewed on an on-going basis. Changes may be made based on priorities of the library and/or college, and/or as new initiatives or best practices arise.
The Stephen B. Luce Library acquires materials that document and preserve the history of the college, in accordance with our Collection Development Policy. This includes:
