University Archives worked collaboratively with CCT’s staff to generate a full index to all issues of this publication from November 1954 through Fall 2018, which allows for directed searching of this incredibly useful content.
Although the publication has taken on various formats over the years — newspaper, newsletter and magazine — the content of this alumni publication has always been extremely informative. CCT has provided in-depth articles on topics of interest to the Columbia College community (e.g., co-education, the Core Curriculum, fraternities, religion on campus, Varsity Show), fascinating profiles of notable alumni, faculty and staff, as well as reports on the annual activities of the College and its alumni (e.g., reunions, Columbia College Fund, awards, Class Day, Commencement). As with for Spectator and for The Record, we are now able to make CCT available to both the Columbia and the broader community from any computer in the world.
This work was made possible thanks to a gift from the board of the Columbia University Club Foundation, which was made in recognition of the nearly 20 years that Alex Sachare CC ’71 served as editor of the College’s alumni magazine (1998-2017).
