History of the Administrative Publications: Barnardiana Collection
The first issue of Barnardiana was released in December 1948. Compiled by the Barnard Public Relations Office, it was, according to the first issue, intended to “pass along to members of the faculty and staff bits of information gleaned from newspaper clipping files and office memoranda.” Faculty and staff members were encouraged to submit news from their personal and academic lives to the newsletter to be published; in this way, Barnardiana functioned much like the Barnard Magazine, which is the magazine published for Barnard alumnae. The last issue of Barnardiana was released in the summer of 1969.
This collection consists of five volumes of bound issues of Barnardiana, which was an informational newsletter released to the faculty and staff by the Public Relations department of Barnard. This collection is print material; photographs were incorporated in later issues. Articles in Barnardiana deal with the inner workings of Barnard. There are statistics about enrollment in classes; reports on Barnard events such as convocation; lists of appointments to staff, new visiting faculty members, and changes in graduation requirements; and detailed information about advances in respective fields or works published by Barnard Professors. Each issue of Barnardiana ends with a plea for news from faculty members, who supplied content to the magazine by writing into the PR department.
