I’ve learned quite a bit on the history of Eastern since I’ve started working on this project. Since there are barely any sources still available about the University’s history during that era, I have been relying on newspaper articles to try and come up with some leads. The Hartford courant has given me very little information. Most of the articles included pertaining to Willimantic involve very bureaucratic matters like voting in a new police chief or a new speeding laws that were beginning to be enforced. Information on the university involved the numbers of gradating students.
