Scope and Contents

This collection represents the collective activities of the student residents of Caltech’s Avery House from 1995 to 2008. It is particularly strong on the organized social activities of the house and on the house’s efforts to document its own history. Those efforts resulted in the development of this collection by student Ryan Hamerly, whose personal notes are included in it. Digital media include approximately 6000 emails to a house discussion list, as well as scanned building plans for Avery House.


  • Creation: 1995 - 2009
