Amherst College Commencement Collection

Amherst College Archives & Special Collections

The Amherst College Commencement Collection contains programs, news articles, speeches, schedules of events, and other items relating to commencements, though only the programs have been selected for digitization. Commencement programs give an overview of the commencement ceremony at Amherst College from 1822 to the present. Contents of the commencement programs vary by year, but often include information such as the names and hometowns of the graduates, names of speakers at the ceremony, and lists of members of honors societies. These material are held at Amherst College Archives & Special Collections in Amherst, MA.
