The Davidson College Encyclopedia is a work in progress. The Library team is hard at work moving data from the current site to this environment (Omeka S), which should foster greater collaboration and research for our whole community.
The entries are researched and written by different members of the Davidson College community. The initial entries were created by students in the fall of 2003 in Dr. Shireen Campbell’s English 101W; Literacies for the 21st Century course.
This site contains materials originally published in yearbooks, newspapers, and other Davidson College publications. You may encounter upsetting racist, oppressive, and outdated representations in these documents. They are included for historical accuracy and do not represent the views of the current Davidson College community, which honors the dignity of all persons and commits itself to a quest for truth and the building of a more just and humane future.
