Collection Overview

Scope and Content
Materials consist predominantly of newspaper clippings relating to Berea students who attended any division or school of the institution, such as Normal, Foundation, and College, among others.
Clippings, along with fragmentary correspondence, student papers, publications, and miscellaneous other materials, are filed in folders for individual students. Materials provide a biographical reference source for Special Collections staff. In some cases, fragmentary college records of individual students may be present. Additionally, a series of records (.4 l.f.) on Berea students who served in the armed forces during World War II is present. These consist of completed forms which detail service records and wartime experiences of former students.
Files on students who later became Berea faculty or staff members are located elsewhere.
