Historical Atlas of Mount Holyoke College
in History 283 "Mapping the Memorable" used sources in
the Archives to begin creating an atlas that will depict many aspects
of the College's cultural and environmental history. Under the supervision
of professor Robert Schwartz - and with the support of many other
Mount Holyoke faculty and staff, as well as a number of alumnae
- the students explored the history of dining halls on campus, the
College's long commitment to community service, student traditions
such as the annual May Day celebration and the "Freshman Frolic,"
and other topics.
and photographs from the archives were scanned into the web site

12 students in the class gave a presentation of their work to a
large and enthusiastic audience that included President Joanne V.
Creighton, who found special funding to support the on-going atlas
