The Claremont Colleges subscribe to databases
that provide access to detailed historical
financial information. They include
extensive data such as income and
balance sheet information and stock market
data. Some series have information from as
far back as 1950. One database is Standard
& Poors ( S & P) Research Insight, available
for use only within the Libraries. The second
database includes S & P as well as CRSP
( Chicago Research in Securities Prices) data,
and is available via the Internet through
WRDS, a specialized interface, restricted to
Claremont Colleges faculty, staff & students.
This database also requires a special personal
password issued by a faculty member.
In order to use these databases, it is helpful
to have an introduction from the Business
Librarian, Mary Martin. She can reached by
email at firstname.lastname@example.org
or ext. 18923.

When Booker T. Washington spoke
on January 3, 1903, the Los Angeles Times
hailed him as, “ one of the greatest . . . men who
have visited Pomona College.”
The Pomona College Student Life reported, “[ the
speech] was attended by a great throng of people
such as Pomona College has not witnessed for many a day.”
In his address, Washington discussed race relations, the importance of higher education, and the mission of the Tuskegee Institute, which he
founded in 1881: “ We, of our institute,
believe in dignifying every common labor
which goes to build up the world;
we believe in making work, if well done,
nothing less than sublime.” Carrie Marsh, Special Collections Librarian
