They demonstrate student interests and activities; show the programs given visitors (such as the Abp of Baltimore), those given on St. Catherine's Day, given on scientific and mechanical subjects, and given to departing Fathers. Considering the components of the programs, with music, poems, and speeches, they show that during this period the College was largely dependent upon its own resources for entertainment.

Box: 15 Fold: 1 MD PROV COLL: Woodstock College: MSS histories, 1915-1952
DATE SPAN: [01/01/1915]? - [12/31/1952]?

DESCRIPTION: Several typewritten histories of Woodstock. One, of about 23 pp. appears to be by Devitt, Rev. E.I., SJ, or derived from the kinds of histories that he wrote. It covers 1869 until 1915 and is in two slightly different versions. There is also a recapitulation of the numbers of priests ordained at Woodstock from 1870 through 1940, and finally, there is an amusing account by Fr. Repetti of the installation of electricity (with their own plant) in about 1919. The account is incomplete in many technical respects (what kind of fuel and steam-engine was used) but reminds one of his account of the installation of indoor plumbing at one of the Residences in Southern Maryland.

Box: 15 Fold: 2 MD PROV COLL: Woodstock College: Woodstock-Georgetown Affiliation
DATE SPAN: 02/06/1925 - 12/05/1944

DESCRIPTION: This folder is organized on different principals than the earlier parts of the series. It is limited to one subject--the so-called "integration" of Woodstock College and Georgetown, including the discussions leading up to it, the signing of the agreement in 1935, and the eventual dissolution of the "integration" in 1944. The original purpose of affiliating the two appeared to be to meet a need or desire to give standard terminology (A.B., A.M., Ph.D.) to the degrees that Woodstock College was awarding, so that the world outside the Society would understand the relative value of the degrees that Jesuits had been awarded. Attaching Woodstock to Georgetown was thus a way to provide the necessary measure and value to Woodstock's education. In 1944 Woodstock obtained its own accreditation and did not, therefore, need any longer to be attached to Georgetown.

Box: 15 Fold: 3 MD PROV COLL: Woodstock College: Missions, ca 1915-1968
DATE SPAN: [01/01/1915]? - [12/31/1968]?

Box: 15 Fold: 6 MD PROV COLL: Woodstock College: Closing of the College, 1969-1971
DATE SPAN: [01/01/1969]? - [12/31/1971]?

DESCRIPTION: This file, largely clippings, but also containing a few letters, covers part of the discussion preceding the decision to transfer Woodstock College to New York City, the closing itself, and some information on the subsequent use of the facility after its sale.

DATE SPAN: [01/01/1900]? - [12/31/1970]?

Box: 15 Fold: 8 MD PROV COLL: Woodstock College: Printed Booklets, 1940-1944
DATE SPAN: 01/01/1940 - 12/31/1944

The first is a fundraising booklet from 1940, treating the American Jesuits as a whole--education and missions--and with no special mention of Woodstock except that it was printed there.
