Hopkins History Goes Online

Would you like to hear the former University Chaplain describe the time Joan Baez stayed at Levering Hall for a week in the 60s and performed at Shriver Hall? Maybe you're writing a paper on student activism and need to find examples of campus organizing in the 1970s.

1970_Yearbook-1 76You can learn about all these things and much more from the comfort of home, any time of the day, with our newly digitized University Archives collections! The University Archives has digitized the following resources that are available through JScholarship:

Johns Hopkins University Yearbooks (1889-2014)

Hopkins Oral History Collection (53 interviews, and still growing!)
