History of the Collection
The majority of the Conway records were transferred to the College Archives from the Office of the President in a number of accessions dating from the time of her tenure until the present. Some material, however, came from Conway herself after her departure in 1985. Additional biographical materials, such as newspaper clippings, press releases, and photographs, have been added by the College Archives staff.
The Records of the Office of the President constitute a continuing collection, because certain materials remain in active use by the office for periods exceeding a president's actual tenure. The College Archives may receive accessions/additions long after the date of creation. Significant additions will be noted in an updated finding aid
Processed by Laura Finkel, with the assistance of Sara Streett.
