About the Collection
This collection consists of biographical files documenting alumni, faculty, staff and other affiliates of Norwich University. These files were created and/or accrued by various offices and individuals, including alumni affairs and development staff members, archives staff and former university historian, William Arba Ellis.
This collection guide lists files documenting individuals with last names beginning with letter U (see content listing).
Most classes before 1939 are represented in or close to their entirety. However, in most cases, files compiled on members of later classes are too recent to have been transferred to the archives. Some information used to track Vermont College (Montpelier Seminary) alumni from the 1910s-1930s is also documented in these files, although efforts to maintain contact with these individuals only began after Norwich University’s acquisition of that school in 1972.
The following subjects are represented in this collection. If you are researching these topics, try using these search terms in the library catalog:
Norwich University -- History -- 20th century. Norwich University -- Alumni and alumnae.
Norwich University -- Faculty.
Norwich University -- Employees.
Norwich University. -- Vermont College -- Alumni and alumnae.
Montpelier Seminary -- Alumni and alumnae.
The collection is open.
Many items in the University Archives are one-of-a-kind resources that are not likely to be available anywhere but here. For this reason, forming citations for archival sources is a little different than for books and periodicals. If you need to cite anything from this collection, follow the format below: Identification of specific item; Date (if known); Biographical Files Collection, U, Box and/or Folder and/or Item Identification; Norwich University Archives, Kreitzberg Library, Northfield, VT. Here’s an example from the collection:
