College Archives

In 2015, there is a vibrant community on Swarthmore’s campus of individuals identifying as queer and their allies. But that has not always been the case. This timeline highlights major moments in the history of queer life at Swarthmore College, 1970-2015.

Additional resources for studying Swarthmore community queer history are listed in the research guide.

The Swarthmore College Archives are maintained by the Friends Historical Library, and except for a limited number of restricted files, materials may be viewed at FHL during our open hours. For more information, email or learn more about the collection on the College Archives homepage.
