  • Henry Burling Thompson Papers

    On the letterpress copy books (1889-1911): The chief interest of these letters, aside from Princeton matters, is in the volumes for 1895-1904 and 1904-1906, when Thompson was deeply involved in Delaware politics; and in Wilmington local history. Although there are company and business letters in nearly all the books, they are comparatively few in number and embody nothing like a history of Thompson's Bancroft Company. Except to a biographer the family and personal letters are of scant interest.

  • Andrew C. Imbrie Papers

Among subjects touched frequently in his student letters to his parents are housing, campus customs, campus organizations, buildings and grounds, the course of study, campus figures, honors, football, and skating on the local canal.

  • Princeton University Student Christian Association Records

    While these three organizations had different names and operated under different charters, they shared a common tradition and filled the same role in campus life.

The collection is incomplete, being informally assembled by many people over the years.
