University of Vermont Alumni Publications
Since 1905, the University of Vermont has regularly published newsletters and magazines for its alumni. The alumni publications are a valuable source of information about the institution and UVM students, faculty, and staff. The publications document activities and accomplishments, curriculum developments, and campus expansion and building construction. They include feature articles on diverse topics, statistical and financial reports, interviews, photographs, and alumni news.
Civil War Broadsides and Ephemera
The Civil War Broadsides and Ephemera Collection contains items from the Wilbur Collection of Vermontiana that were printed and circulated from 1861 to 1865. Most of the items are related to the war, while a small number are related to Vermont’s efforts to organize and train the state militia after the war. The collection features proclamations, orders and announcements about the state’s military operations, including recruitment, enrollment, supplies, and equipment. It also includes announcements about the progress of the war and President Lincoln’s death. One of the most unusual items is a broadside alerting the public to the theft of U.S. Treasury notes and bonds stolen from a St. Albans, Vermont bank by Confederate raiders in October 1864. Additional items will be added to this collection in the future.
