Lives on Letterhead: A Reflection of Family Business in the South from the Newcomb Archives One of the collections housed in the Newcomb Archives is the collection of Newcomb College Student Records, dating from 1895-1925. As in all archival collections, this collection shows us the past -- glimpses of the dreams and hopes of generations to come before us. One way that this collection allows this sort of reflection is through its letterheads, the very stationery on which parents and their daughters wrote to the College. These colorful pages provide information about the family business or the employer, usually of the father- and by extension information about the whole of the commercial South.
The Newcomb Arcade Web Archive includes select issues in their entirety and an anthology of pieces from the publication. The Newcomb Arcade was the magazine published by the students and alumnae of The College from 1909-1934.
Ruth and Rosalie: Friendships and Historical Process. The history of New Orleans and Louisiana in the twentieth century has been shaped not only by the names writ large in history books and mentioned on the History Channel, but by many dedicated and brave women whose involvement in social and political causes revolutionized politics, education, and many other facets of life in the city and state. Two of these women, Ruth Dreyfous and Rosalie Cohen, are commemorated here for their work to improve New Orleans for its citizens.
The Newcomb Pottery page is dedicated to the ceramics tradition of Newcomb College of the last hundred years. Features the biographies of some of the women potters as well as the history of Newcomb Pottery.
Scrapbooks: A page about scrapbooks, their history, and their cultural significance.
