How do you find materials in the Archives?

The Archives collection can be accessed in two ways. Many materials in the archives are catalogued in MaconCat, the library's online catalog. For those materials that are not catalogued, you will need to use the finding aids below.

Two published histories of the college provide an excellent overview:

Scanlon, James.  Randolph-Macon College: A Southern History. Charlottesville: University Press of Virginia, 1983.

Irby, Richard. History of Randolph-Macon College, Virginia. Richmond, Va : Whittet & Shepperson, 1890.

The Irby history is available online at the Internet Archive.

Finding aids provide a very brief guide to what's available in the archives. Materials that are not catalogued can be searched in the finding aids. Generally, materials are organized according to a President's tenure.
