Finding Aids Added from the Chatham University Archives & Special Collections

December 2018

The Chatham University Archives & Special Collections is pleased to share with the Historic Pittsburgh community of users a new selection of finding aids that facilitate research into Chatham history.  The finding aids will enable discovery of broad set to topics including the history of the university and the individuals who comprise the Chatham Community.  Records of particular note include the Collection on Rachel Carson, the Coeducation Debate Collection, and the Eden Hall Farm Records, which includes photographs of the farm prior to its donation to the university in 2007.  Records of prominent faculty members, including as Jerry Caplan and Laberta Dysart, complement materials documenting the student experience, such as the scrapbooks of Edna McKee-Houston and Martha J. Crandall.  Embarking on its 150th anniversary year in 2019, the Chatham University Archives & Special Collections welcome research inquiries from all members of the public, as well as students and scholars.  Click here to view the new finding aids.
