History of the Collection
The meteorological journals kept by Professor Snell seem to have been given to the College by Members of the Snell family. In the fall of 1989, the University of Massachusetts at Amherst transferred their weather observations from 1891 to 1924 to the Amherst College Archives. Dr. Ives deposits his climatological data annually.
