Special Collections Presents First Virtual Crossword Puzzle


In honor of National Crossword Puzzle Day (December 21) Special Collections is offering its first ever crossword puzzle. Clues come from each repository within Special Collections: the College Archives; the Mortimer Rare Book Collection; and the Sophia Smith Collection of women’s history. 

The clues are purposefully challenging, though nearly all of the answers can be found by searching through SC’s finding aids or the Five College library catalog. By completing the puzzle, participants will get to know some of the materials held by Special Collections, from rare books and their makers to activists to all things Smith.


Good luck, and happy puzzling!

*Please note that the contest is closed now, but feel free to work on the crossword. Congratulations to the winners!
