Collection Scope and Content Summary
The CDs in the collection are Barnard acapella group Bacchantae performances, On Dance lectures, and other lectures given at Barnard College.
The records in the collection are of the song Barnard! Barnard! performed by the Columbia University Choir and recorded in 1964 for the 75th Anniversary of Barnard College. There are also speeches by Dean Gildersleeve and a 1938 Barnard Day radio broadcast.
341 audiocassettes and 6 CDs of presentations from Scholar and Feminist Conferences, 1975-1996, were deaccessioned and moved to the Barnard Center for Research on Women collection, BC13.58, because they fit more appropriately into the scope of that collection.
