The Lincoln Archives is an invaluable collection highlighting the history of Lincoln School and women’s education in Rhode Island.
What kinds of materials are in the archives?
- Published items include catalogs, bulletins, yearbooks, literary magazines, and student newspapers.
- Posters, newsletters, scrapbooks, and correspondence document everything from academics to athletics and the arts.
- Our textile collection shows the evolution of the Lincoln uniform from years of “dress greens” to the plaid kilt worn by Lincoln girls today.
- The photographic collections comprise the largest part of the archives and provide compelling visual evidence of tradition and change at Lincoln over many decades.
