Beloit College Honors Day records

Identifier: AC 62


The Beloit College Honors Day records contain programs for most Academic Honors Day Convocations (also called Recognition Day) since 1943, and listed within the programs are names of recipients, arranged by field of study. Later editions of the programs offer explanations for the different awards, and various years feature covers designed by Beloit College students. Also held in the collection are correspondence, press releases (especially for Who’s Who Among Students in American Colleges and Universities), audiovisuals, and other materials discussing nominees, awards budgets, the awards and their recipients.
