The Amherst College Library has created this trove of five different digital collections which tell (respectively) the history of a noted labor lawyer, coeducation at Amherst, campus athletics, college catalogues, and songs of Amherst. The first collection contains selected files from the papers of Jerry Cohen, class of 1963. Cohen was the general counsel of the United Farm Workers of America (UFW) and personal attorney of Cesar Chavez. In this section, visitors can look over some UFW case summaries and other interesting documents. The next collection here contains chronologies, articles, newspaper clippings, and committee reports which tell the story of coeducation on the Amherst College campus from 1870 to 1998. Moving on, "A Glance at Amherst Athletics" is a 42-page document which offers a history of athletic endeavors on campus from one Walter L. Tower, class of 1893. Finally, the site is rounded out by the Amherst College Annual Catalogues from 1822-1900, and a rather fun college songbook from 1926.
