The records of YMCA of Greater Boston comprise approximately 56 cubic feet of materials, documenting the organization's administrative, religious, social, educational, and community activities from 1851 to 2000. The majority of the records fall within the years 1851 and 1970. The role of former YMCA president Peter Post is well documented through extensive correspondence. Several branches, such as Dorchester, Huntington Avenue, Hyde Park and West Roxbury, and the Northwoods Day camp are also well documented. There is also some material relating to Northeastern University's early programs, such as the Evening Institute, the Automotive School, and the School of Law. Materials include correspondence, brochures, pamphlets, annual reports, meeting minutes, photographs, 35mm color slides, negatives, scrapbooks, committee reports, financial records, hymn books, newspaper clippings, newspapers and newsletters, publications, and fund-raising records.
Researchers should note that Box 35 no longer exists, the materials were placed in FF5/D1.
