Focus: Historical Catalogue of Students

Kalamazoo College & Kalamazoo Theological Seminary, 1851–1902

Interesting information about people often appears in unusual sources. This alumni directory from Kalamazoo College is a good case in point. There are 1232 entries.  Most entries contain the full name of the student, dates of attendance, date and place of birth, married name of women alumni, career history, and address at the time of publication, or date and place of death, if deceased.  It should be noted that many of the birthdates preceded the 1867 beginning of vital records in Michigan. These entries have been indexed in our Local Information Database, so a name search will include this item along with other items about the person in newspapers, books, or photographs.

This directory includes entries for the Westnedge brothers, members of the Upjohn, denBleyker, Eldred and other local families. The highlighted item below belongs to a former Kalamazoo Public Library employee. The call number for this book is H 378.774 K134 1851–1902.
