Archaeological Insights into the Life of Santa Clara University

(p.182) 10 Beyond the Course Catalogue
Beneath the Ivory Tower



University Press of Florida

The ground at Santa Clara University has yielded a wealth of information on the ways of education in the nineteenth century, the lives of the male students and their Jesuit faculty, and ultimately the lives of returning veterans and their families. The expectations meant to guide the students in their education are dictated by the university catalogues, rulebooks, and historical papers and are well documented through archival and library resources. In addition to documents and oral history, however, the artifacts provide another and often different perspective. Sometimes they tell the truth about what really went on. Smoking, dipping snuff, drinking, and general mischief during the early years at Santa Clara occurred despite the written bans on such behavior. Even walls could not keep the students inside. Prohibited materials from the outside world often made their way in. This chapter offers archaeological insights into the life of Santa Clara University.

Keywords:   Santa Clara University, education, Jesuit faculty, university catalogues, rulebooks, prohibited materials, archaeology
