Middletown Collection

SC&A holds local history materials about Middletown and the surrounding area. Middletown city directories and maps, nineteenth century photographs, eighteenth and nineteenth century Middletown imprints, association records, diaries, and letters are some of the resources available. Topically, the holdings support a host of possible directions. Undergraduates and graduates have researched aspects of social history, immigration, civil disturbances, transportation, civic associations, the Connecticut Industrial School for Girls, local economy and other topics, using the Middletown resources in SC&A, Olin Library, and area repositories.

Please see our guide to Middletown history resources for a complete description of resources available at Wesleyan, online, and at other repositories.
