Biographical/Historical Note

The Catalogue was first published in 1807 as a single page broadside with the names of administrators, faculty, and students. Curricular information was included in 1822 and from 1821-1921, information on the Medical School of Maine. Between 1904 and 1977 the Catalogue was published as an issue of the Bowdoin College Bulletin. Beginning in 1969, the list of students was no longer published in the Catalogue (a separate student directory had been produced since 1949).

As the College expanded, so did the Catalogue, including information on the academic calendar, curriculum, admissions policies, finances, campus buildings, and student life. In the 2010-2011 academic year, the Catalogue became primarily an online publication available via the College website; a pared down print version was also produced in parallel with the online Catalogue.
