Scope and Contents

From the Sub-Series:

This sub-series demonstrates the centrality of Johnson Chapel to Amherst College, both as a physical space and as a symbolic one. It contains 19th and 20th century renovation records, early 20th century maintenance and repair records, fundraising correspondence and project records for chapel organs, and schedules and student petitions concerning the tower clock and bells. Photographs document the building exterior from about 1860 through 2005. Interior views show late 19th century classrooms, 19th-21st century views of the chapel, as well as the President's office (1934-circa 1960). In addition, the chapel building is depicted in a wide variety of personal and professional artwork, including paintings, prints, and drawings.
