Entrance Books and Other Student Ledgers

Identifier: GTA-000401

Scope and Contents

In the 19th century, it was customary for the Georgetown President to examine each candidate for admission into the College and to record in this series of ledgers the terms of admission. The content varies over time but can include class assignments, the name of the person paying student expenses, any special arrangements for tuition payments, a listing of extra classes to be given, and a mention of items brought to school, such as spoon and bedding. Some of the ledgers overlap in time of coverage.

A number of other 19th Century volumes recording student data are also filed in this collection.
