Westbrook College History Collections

The Westbrook College History Collection documents and preserves the history of Westbrook Seminary (1831-1925), Westbrook Seminary & Junior College (1925-1933), Westbrook Junior College (1933-1970), Westbrook College (1970-1996), and the Portland Campus of the University of New England. Published and non-published sources, records, documents, personal papers, scrapbooks, memorabilia, photographs, images and artifacts provide permanent and enduring commentary on the founding, development, organization, management and achievements of the institutions that have called the campus “home.”

Sources within the collection date as far back as 1842, and support historical research, knowledge and scholarship in secondary and higher education, and in 19th and 20th century social and cultural history.
