New Digital Exhibit: “Christmas at Caldwell”

Christmas traditions have always been an important part of Caldwell’s history. Although the activities may have changed, students and staff have always gathered together to celebrate the Christmas festivities. The Caldwell University Archives’ new digital exhibit, “Christmas at Caldwell,” highlights these various traditions over the years, such as tree-trimming contests and plays, candlelight ceremonies, caroling, and the annual Christmas banquet. The photographs in the exhibit are from the 1940s through the 1970s.

The exhibit can be viewed at Stay tuned for more digital exhibits in the future!
