The Stephan Archives is excited to announce that the first phase in the Lawrentian digitization project has been completed. The first phase of digitization included the Lawrenceville Alumni Bulletin, the predecessor to the Lawrentian. The Alumni Bulletin began in 1906 and ran through 1936. Digital versions of the Alumni Bulletin can be found along side the digital versions of The Lawrence in our repository for digital collections located at: http://digitalarchives.lawrenceville.org.
The second phase of the project will cover the period during which the name change occurred in 1936 through 1970. Issues from this era are currently being packed and will be shipped to the digitization vendor in the coming weeks. Future plans include digitizing all issues of the Lawrentian through present day. This project was made possible through the support and generosity of Dr. John Stephan L. 1959 and Barbara Stephan.
We at the Archives have recently begun digitizing some of our high-use reference materials and making them available through the Bunn Library’s ebrary catalog. The first two titles added were Five Miles Away by Samuel Slaymaker and The House System at The Lawrenceville School by A.R. Evans. Now anyone on campus can access these resources at any time. We will be adding additional titles such as the General Catalogue, 1810-1910 and Roland Mulford’s History of the Lawrenceville School in the near future.
The historical Lawrence student newspaper, available since last spring at digitalarchives.lawrenceville.org, has a new interface which features a more streamlined look and easier-to-use search features.
