Note: New finding aids are currently being added. Please check back soon for more.
Documenting the events, people and culture that make Gordon history, the official College Archives collects a wide variety of materials organized across more than fourty record groups. In order to prepare researchers for their visit to the Archives, a number of online finding aids are being made available for selected record groups and sub-groups. Researchers will find that most record groups listed below do not have online finding aids. However, more finding aids are available at our office for on-site visitors. Visitors should make an appointment with archives staff. More information is available on the Visiting the Archives page.
Record group arrangement is primarily based on the administrative organization of the institution. The bulk of the collection resides within record groups 1 - 100. Record Group 240 contains the records of Barrington College (now merged with Gordon), and most photographs can be found in Record Groups 905, 906 and 907.
Manuscript collections are generally in either Record Group 302 or 306, depending on the relationship of the individual to Gordon College. The records of College Presidents, however, are found in Record Group 1, including the manuscripts of founder A. J. Gordon.
