Scope and content

This subseries includes monthly, term, and academic year-end library school reports from 1894 to 1940. Some reports indicate they were authored by an unspecified Vice-Director, others are by unknown authors, and still others are personally signed by Mary Plummer or Josephine Rathbone. The reports are mostly typewritten, some with handwritten edits, with a few being completely handwritten. Reports include information such as admission and graduation numbers and analysis, job placements, faculty appointments, departures and activities, field work completed, alumni events, questionnaire results, the status of funds, examination results, curriculum, and school happenings. Of special significance is a report of the library classes' work in the Children's Room, prepared by Anne Carroll Moore.
