A History of Student Activities and Achievements at Hampshire College originated in a summer 1990 project funded by Community Council, during which Tim Shary, former chairperson of Community Council, organized the existing Community Council records and also compiled a chronological index to the student newspapers and other historic documents.
In 2000, Sarah Finger, as part of a HACU Div. I, decided to continue the project, focusing on indexing student newspapers as the stories reflected the activities and achievements of Hampshire students.
Together, the two indexes provide a historical overview of a wide variety of student activities and concerns over the decades of the college's existence. The student newspapers indexed here are available in the library on microfilm as well as in the college archives.
