Scope and Contents

This collection contains the bound Catalogs, Bulletins, and Course Announcements from 1856 to 1970 of Tufts College. In 1956, the bulletin changed name to reflect Tufts University and the individual schools. Volumes include school descriptions, degree requirements, course descriptions, and entrance requirements. Early volumes include the roster of trustees, faculty, staff, and enrolled students. After 1970, individual school bulletins were no longer bound together.

DCA is missing the catalog for the 1918-1919 academic year; it may never have been printed.


  • 1854 -- 1970
