Smith College Collections Online

Terms of Use
Annual Circulars available online cover the years of President L. Clark Seelye's tenure (i.e., from the founding of Smith College in 1872 to the 1909-10 academic year). Pre-1875 issues are an educational prospectus of the college which had not yet begun to enroll students. Subsequent circulars generally include a description of the college's educational mission, a list of faculty, trustees and students, with total numbers of students enrolled in each class; and information about requirements for admission and promotion; curriculum and text books; travel and lodging arrangements; and tuition and other costs.
