Sources for Database
In 1890 Centre College published an alumni directory that listed all graduates
and nongraduates through the Class of 1890. The entries for graduates included
brief biographical sketches. In 1915 Kentucky College for Women also published
a directory of its alumni, including biographical sketches for graduates.
These two directories are the sources for the alumni database.
What is included in the database
- All Centre College graduates (as listed in the 1890 directory) from 1824
- All Caldwell College/Kentucky College for Women graduates (as listed in
the 1915 directory) from 1861 through 1913

The biographical sketches were keyed exactly as they appear in the directories.
Be aware that the amount of information varies from entry to entry, that
the kinds of information included for each entry is inconsistant, and that
abbreviations are extensively used.
The information was originally keyed into a MS Access database by Sid Zadnichek
of the Centre College Library staff. The Web search interface and Access to Postgresql conversion was done by Shane Wilson of Centre's Computer Services staff.
