Newcomb Archives & Vorhoff Library Special Collections
The Newcomb Archives collects, preserves, and makes available records that document the legacy of Newcomb College and the history of women and gender in the Gulf South. The Vorhoff Library is a non-circulating special collections library devoted to women's education, prescriptive literature, culinary history, Newcomb authors, gender and sexuality, third wave feminist zines, and other topics.

The Newcomb College alumnae oral history project began in 1986. Some interviews have been digitized and may be accessed on the oral history project blog, and will eventually be available through the Tulane University Digital Library (we no longer update the blog). In some cases we can provide digital access on request.
