Residence Hall records, 1905-1934

Series I. Residence Hall Registers, 1905-1934

This series contains the books that served as front desk registers for each hall. Organized by the resident's last name and first initial, the books include such information as the room number, mail box number, move-in date, move-out date, and a forwarding address. Furnald Hall served as a women's residence hall from 1917 to 1922. For women residents, the books include full first names. The books were maintained by the "office boys" and the inside covers sometimes include phone numbers for cab companies, other residence halls, area hospitals, Western Union messengers and the post office address. They may also include an occupancy summary and a list of "men who left with key, charged $1.00 for key deposit." The records begin from the opening of the first two residence halls on campus, Hartley and Livingston Halls (opened in 1905) and include the early years of Furnald Hall (1913) and John Jay Hall (1926).
