The Archives maintains important items that may not fall into established categories.  Until the time where they find a grouping to belong under, they will be found in "Miscellaneous." 
Hill School Fires:
  • The Archives maintains a variety of materials pertaining to the three major fires that occurred in The Hill School’s history (newspaper articles, photographs, publications, restoration, etc.)  The three fires occurred in 1884, 1890, and 1973.

Women of The Hill:

  • The Archives maintains various files and information pertaining to the Women of The Hill - an organization formed mostly of faculty wives in its early years when it was called the Woman's Club.  Today, Women of The Hill is also comprised of women who are employed by and otherwise associated with The Hill School.   Much of the information in the Archives is not current.
