Scope and Contents

The Howard Williams collection on student life at Colgate University contains miscellaneous clippings, programs, fliers, charters and correspondence relating to student life at Colgate. Topics covered include fraternities, Colgate's rivalry with Syracuse, dormitory life, fall and winter parties, cane rush, and general information on student organizations. The collection appears to have been at least partially assembled by former Colgate University Archivist Howard Williams. It is not a comprehensive collection on student life at Colgate, but rather an artificially assembled collection of miscellaneous materials.
