Local History

Bennett College Archives

The Millbrook Library houses a collection of historical material and memorabilia relating to Bennett College. Bennett College was founded in 1890 by May Friend Bennett as an educational institution for women and was in operation until 1978. The collection includes yearbooks, scrapbooks, photo albums, memorabilia, and various administrative documents relating to college operations.

The Millbrook Library staff is working to digitize the collection so it will be available and searchable online. We are excited to announce that the first documents have been uploaded and are live!

We are regularly scanning and cataloging more of the collection, so check back for updates. We hope that having the collection digitized will make it easier for people to learn about the history of Bennett College.

If you have a specific research request, please contact Thomas Finnigan at tfinnigan@millbrooklibrary.org.
