These tales of Trinity Faculty, Administrators, and Alumni of some distinction were researched and written by Emma Paine, a graduate student from Simmons College, during her “archives field study” internship at the Watkinson Library in the summer of 2014. They are presented here to give the Trinity community and the public a sense of the rich and diverse material that is carefully preserved in the archives and to encourage all who love Trinity to support our efforts.

Recounts the complex, multifaceted process of growth and change that transformed Trinity from the "Hartford local," as it was known in the early 20th century, into a premier national liberal arts college. Expansive in scope, the book takes as its domain everything from presidential administrations to athletics, the U.S. Navy's V-12 program during World War II to curricular reform, expansion of the physical plant to student activism, coeducation to neighborhood involvement. Its pages are filled with the faculty, administrators, students, trustees, alumni, and friends who have cherished the College decade after decade and helped sustain its special character. Complementing the text of this richly informative history is a large number of illustrations taken from the College's visual archives and depicting subjects across the entire span of Trinity's history.
