Georgetown College Financial Records: Vault Collection

 Collection
Identifier: GTA-000883
Over 200 volumes detailing the business affairs of Georgetown College in the 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries. Included are journals, ledgers, day books, cash books, and expense books. As the College managed the money brought by or sent to individual students for much of this time, the ledgers provide detailed information about the expenses of an education at Georgetown, documenting not only tuition and room and board expenses but also charges for items such as required text books, haircuts, shoe laces, spoons, etc. Pre-1863 volumes document the presence of slaves on campus.

Please note that description of these records is on-going and this finding aid is not a finished product.
