From the original 1818 survey to more recent items, this is a digital collection of selected archival material from the Special Collections. Trustees and faculty minutes, annual catalogs, and various programs. The bulk of the items date from the 19th-century.
Minutes of the Centre College Trustees from 1819 to 1933. The volume covering the years 1854-1862 has been lost for many years, and its fate remains unknown. Until 1848, when a separate journal was begun, the Trustees minutes also include entries for today's Kentucky School for the Deaf, and provide a source of information on the early history of that institution. Later years are located in Special Collections.
