The Dana Hall School Archives seeks your help in documenting and preserving our community’s shared experience of the unprecedented COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. 

The Nina Heald Webber 1949 Archives houses generations of Dana Hall history, from just before the school’s founding in 1881 to the present. In working to preserve our school’s history, the Archives recognizes the historic nature of this pandemic and strives to record Dana Hall’s response during this time. The Dana Hall COVID-19 Community Archive Project’s goal is to document the unique reactions, thoughts and experiences of Dana Hall students and community members in order to preserve this important period of history for future generations. 

All students, faculty, staff, and alumnae are invited to participate in preserving Dana Hall history!

Thank you for sharing your experiences and for helping the Archives document Dana Hall’s history. Stay safe and healthy!
