Identifier: RG10-1

Scope and Contents

This collection consists of student papers given to the Archives by several academic departments. With the exception of two undated and unsigned papers from the earliest days of the school, these examples of student work are all from the 1970s forward. While most of the files are research papers, there are also examples of creative writing. The research papers address a wide range of topics including Davidson town history, housing in the town of Davidson, the black experience at Davidson College, hospice care, Ingersoll-Rand, and Davidson College traditions. There are also papers on dating at Davidson, the North Carolina Medical College, Vietnam, the Davidson school, D.H. Hill, the American Civil War, Foxfire, student activism at Davidson, and antebellum Davidson. The Foxfire papers include three cassette tapes of interviews which are housed with the cassette tapes (see audiotapes 117, 188, 122). The creative writing files are from English 303, Writing Poetry II. The History 353 files are interview logs and final reports from oral history projects. The projects include a history of the Lakeside Terrace neighborhood, the Westside Stakeholders group, the Davidson Fire Department and the Ada Jenkins Center. Cds with full interviews are housed in the Archives AV collection. The Education 340 (2012) files are interviews with Davidson College staff focusing on their views and educational experiences. The Education 340 (2015) files are the result of research into the history of the Ada Jenkins Center between the closing of the school and the establishment of community center in the 1990s. The papers include transcripts of oral history interviews and papers on aspects of the Center's history.
