Collection Description & Creator Information
The Office of Communications Records document a wide range of public University activities and dealings. Most files contain press releases, clippings of University publicity and outside press coverage, and, in some cases, correspondence. Subjects include regular University business as well as special events, University policies, individual departments, faculty members, student activities and life, and dealings with alumni and donors. The records also contain large numbers of photographs and contact prints created by Office of Communication staff photographers. These visual materials document the above-mentioned topics, and many of the images were printed in the Princeton Alumni Weekly, the Princeton Weekly Bulletin, or on the University's webpage.
Please see series descriptions in contents list for additional information about individual series.
