Summary of Holdings and Recent Additions

AtoM currently holds the following records:

a) MAGAZINES: All school magazines up to 2022 have been digitised and added to AtoM.
b) PHOTOGRAPHS: All the formal physical photographs from the BC up to 1999, all the early BP sports teams and BP Plays albums, BP Sports, Cultural and Class photos up to 2016, and a representative selection from the GP and GC up to 1999 have been added to AtoM. These are described on a general level, with more detailed information and names of those who appear in the photographs being added continuously. Many of the photographs have not been published in the magazines. Legends for all images are being added from time to time.
c) DOCUMENTS: A start has been made on digitising and uploading unique documents that record our early history. These currently include Wally Mears' Early History of St Stithians College, Thandulwazi reports, the College Chronicle (1960-1962), the letters of E M Harris and the Harris Album.
d) ARTEFACTS donated by alumni and former staff, such as original school ties and signed programs of early events, are being photographed and the images added to AtoM.
e) HISTORICAL PAPERS dating back to the arrival in South Africa in the 1890s of the College Founders and early Trustees.
f) VIDEOS of interviews with early or long-serving staff, surviving foundation students and parents are being recorded. These will be transcribed and/or edited and extracts made available through AtoM.

Both the physical College Archive and the Online Archive are works in progress and descriptions of newly digitised material are being added regularly.

Should you have more information about an item in our archive we would love to hear from you. Please contact archives@stithian.com.
