Haverford College

Henry Hale Graham Sharpless
In Haverford's early days, there was a registered farm dairy on site and milk cows roamed the pastures. This cream bottle was found in 1968 under the springhouse at Baldwin School in Bryn Mawr, which had been the site of a dump until 1902.


Artifacts shine an important light on the history of the college, offering glimpses of life at Haverford. Included are such examples as a bottle for cream (representing the dairy that existed on the campus), large wooden spoons (reflecting the gift given to the best all-around student in his senior year), trophies (symbolizing the sports which were prominent at the school), medals (speaking to the events considered important across our history) and symbols of clubs (such as the torch used by the Triangle Society).
