Scope of Collection
This collection includes letters, deeds, and other materials related to the Bard Family. These items, with dates ranging from the mid 18th through the mid 20th centuries, animate our understanding of individual family members, their relationships to each other, and to society at large. They are part of a larger collection of Bard family materials donated to the college in 1938-39 by J.A. Sands, a Bard descendant.
