The Quill is a literary magazine produced by students of Bowdoin College and dedicated to the expression of creativity. "The aim of The Quill is to furnish a medium of expression for the literary life of the college, and its columns are open to undergraduates, alumni, and members of the faculty" (The Bowdoin Quill, vol.I, No.2, 1897). It is a compilation of student writings and drawings. The first issue of the Quill was published in 1897.

The collection includes a nearly complete bound run of the Quill, unbound issues, and an additional copy of some issues. Originally, it was published on the fifteenth of each month. In 1929, it was published four times a year; in 1932, three times a year; and in 1956, two times each year. Since 1993 the Quill has been published once a year.
