The SCRC Knowledgebase is the home for quick facts and answers to frequently asked questions about William & Mary history, local history, and other popular research topics. Articles are based on materials in the William & Mary Libraries’ Special Collections Research Center, and are updated frequently.
Much of the information on this site was found in the University Archives within Special Collections. The Colonial Echo yearbook and student newspaper, The Flat Hat, are two of the most commonly consulted resources.
