Over three years, Oberlin College and College Green Publishing have worked hand in hand on the development of the Oberlin book
Countless hours of research and consultation with the Archives and the scale of production have ensured an authentic and meaningful document. Tens of thousands of items were reviewed and carefully considered in this painstaking process: photographs, speeches, personal recollections, poems, posters, artworks, books and architectural plans.
Thousands of images have now been digitalized whilst being considered for publication. In addition, thousands of original photographs were commissioned by College Green for the Oberlin book. Many of these will be made available through the digital archives for research purposes. The Oberlin Alumni Association and the Office of Communications have been instrumental in this labor of love, ensuring guidance, direction and access to all corners of the community.
