  • Scope and Contents

    This collection is comprised of the publications and printed material and photographs of Greenwich Country Day School. The majority of the materials contained in this collection are from between 1970 and 2000, although there are many photographs from 1940 onward as well. The materials relating to the very early days of Greenwich Country Day School are sparse, mostly consisting of commencement notes, class pictures, and a few candid photographs that have been definitively identified as being from 1929-1931. The photographs cover the majority of life at Greenwich Country Day School, and include many photographs of beloved and well remembered faculty and staff members. The publications and printed material mostly consist of publications produced out of the school's own printshop, including Ex Multis, Kaleidoscope, and The Everything Book. There are also some internal records, and a selection of other publications from the school like Tiger Rag or Faces and Facts.
