College Archives

As the official repository for college records, the collection is responsible for Guilford’s institutional memory, preserving records of enduring value and making them accessible. Key published materials are available on open shelves in the Quaker Archives Research Room. There are also two published histories of the college, Dorothy Gilbert’s Guilford: A Quaker College (1937) and Alexander Stoesen’s Guilford College: On the Strength of  150 Years (1987) that are available to check out from the library.
