Since 1976, student papers written on historical Middletown-area topics have been donated to Special Collections & Archives. The Student Papers About Middletown Collection featuers graduate and undergraduate papers about the history of Middletown, Connecticut and the surrounding area. Topics include politics, labor, commerce, ethnic and racial groups, women's history, and leisure. Papers for which authors have granted permission for general online access are available to everyone via WesScholar. Papers for which we do not have that permission are available online only to the Wesleyan community. All papers are available in paper form for use in the SC&A Reading Room. Digitization of these papers was funded in part by Wesleyan’s Service Learning Center.
