This collection contains materials related to the Department of Classical Studies including minutes, correspondence, financial records, a course paper, flyers, and other materials. Materials created during classical studies courses are also included in the collection. For example, CS95, Introduction to Archoaeology, in the fall of 1992 (Professor John Younger) had students excavate an area on East Campus that had been the site of Trinity College's faculty housing. The course paper titled "Faculty Row, A Detailed History of the Homes along Trinity College's Faculty Avenue, 1992" is included in the collection. This collection also contains the records (1927-1965) of the Greek Department.

Also included are graduate instructor materials from the 2010s, including syllabi, past exams, and course information, which was formerly available in the Classical Studies library.
