The Sidney Brooks Papers are now available in ACDC.

Sidney Brooks of Harwich attended Phillips Academy in Andover before attending Amherst College from 1837 to 1841. His papers include thirty-five letters, a ledger of his expenses, and writings from his school days. We chose this collection for the bicentennial project because it contains a representative sample of Brooks’ schoolwork from mid-19th century Amherst College.

This collection was ingested into ACDC in Year One (2018) of the Bicentennial project.
