The Office of Communications and Public Affairs disseminates public information about the college, its people, and its programs. In addition, the office directs the production of printed material for all college divisions and departments. This office began in 1962 as a single position: Director of News Services. Joseph Kamin, the first director, held the position until 1982. The office grew through a number of changes in responsibilities, organization, and personnel. Originally, the office was under the direction of the Executive Secretary of the College. In the 1970s it was relocated, under the Office of Development, where it remains. In a 1983 reorganization, News Services was combined with other college publications, such as the alumni magazine, under the Director of Public Relations. Further responsibilities were added, such as publication of the College Calendar, and by 1986 the position was known as Director of College Relations. In 1989, these services were grouped into a separate office, still under the direction of the Development Office, as the Office of Public Relations and Publications. Organizational changes resulted in further name changes in 1992 (College Relations), 1993 (Communications), and 1999 (Communications and Public Affairs). In 2011, the Office of Communications and Public Affairs became a stand-alone unit reporting to the president.

The records contain news releases, publications, and other informational material. Most notable are a complete set of the Bowdoin Thymes, a daily calendar of events, and the Sundial, a bi-weekly calendar. Forms containing production information about each publication are also in the records. The actual publications produced by the Office of Communications and Public Affairs for other campus departments are filed with that department.

Series Description:

The College Calendar began publication in 1937. A weekly calendar of events and announcements concerning the college community, it included the times and dates of sporting events, and lectures; the speaker and topic of the daily chapel meeting; dates and times of final exams; a listing of current exhibits at the Walker Art Building; and any other information or announcements considered relevant. The Calendar continued to publish its weekly list of events and information even after "The Bowdoin Thymes" began its run as a daily listing of events and announcements. In 1986 the title changed somewhat to the Bowdoin College Calendar and News, as the publication added a "News Notes" section that publicized faculty and staff activities, such as outside lectures, awards and honors. In September 1989 the Calendar and News was replaced by the bi-weekly Sundial: The Bowdoin College Community Calendar and News. Primarily aimed at faculty, and staff, the Sundial contains a two-week calendar of events, and an expanded section of news and stories of interest to that constituency. Beginning August 1991, the Sundial was published weekly, and continued publication until May 1997.

Series Description:

"The Bowdoin Thymes," is a calendar of events occurring on campus, and announcements relevant to student and faculty life. It began as a student-edited publication in November 1966. It was produced by student editors through the Office of Communications. The "Thymes" has gone through a number of permutations in style and tone in the years of its publication. It provides a glimpse into the daily life and attitudes prevailing on the campus. In 1994, publication was taken over by the Office of Communications and the "Thymes" became an on-line only calendar of events. The format was changed so that it listed events for a week in advance and was updated every two days. The "Thymes" ceased publication in 1995.

Series Description:

The Bowdoin Sportsletter, a publication of the Bowdoin College News Service, was issued weekly during the academic year from 1968 through 1980. It was available, on a subscription basis, to alumni and friends of the college. The original subscription price was $3.00/year, rising to $18.00/year in the last year of issue. It contained sports news and results compiled by the Athletic Director, the Alumni Office, and the News Director. Its goal was to give more detailed information about Bowdoin sports than the local newspapers.

Series Description:

This series contains print copies of an online monthly newsletter for Bowdoin alumni, parents, and friends which began in January 2004. The print copies for each month list topics, give a brief summary of each topic, then electronic links to the full stories, rather than print copies of each story-in-full. The newsletter also contains links to the Bowdoin Home Page and other Bowdoin sites. Periodically there are special issues announcing events such as the Alumni College.
