Series I: Administration
The records in this collection cover Kingswood School from its beginnings in 1930 through 1985, when the school merged with Cranbrook School to become Cranbrook Kingswood School. Post-merger schools materials can be found in the Cranbrook Schools collection. There are four series in the Kingswood School Records:
Series I: Administrative (1930-1985) contains Kingswood Board of Directors and Board of Trustees materials and Headmistress/master office files.
Series II: Topical Files (1931-1985) provides the best look at student life at Kingswood, although there are many gaps in the holdings.
Series III: Oversized Materials (1931-1985) contains a handwritten book created by the Class of 1941 documenting the history of Kingswood School to that point. A similar book was later written by the Class of 1964. Also in this series are four scrapbooks containing programs, brochures, and news clippings describing student activities from 1931-1970s.
Series IV: Realia/Memorabilia (1932-1967) contains such diverse materials as a field hockey uniform, a mathematic textbook used by Grace Fry, and the mold for the Kingswood School letter opener.
