Scope and Content Note

This series includes an assortment of Berkshire Farm Center publications and ephemera. Published four times a year and written by students, the Berkshire Farm Banter (1893-2006), renamed the Berkshire Farm Chronicle in 1997, served as a newsletter featuring projects and programs at the institution. The Berkshire Farm Record (1880s-2000s), a monthly publication created by the students of the institution, highlighted their lives at Berkshire Farm. The Berkshire Farm Annual Report (1886-2014) included the executive director's annual report, financial reports, and a message from the institution's president. Other short-term publications and newsletters for public circulation are included in this series.
