The Brooklyn College Ditmas House Collection consists of documents pertaining to the history of Brooklyn College and its immediate neighborhood covering the years 1935 through 1963. It is a small collection of correspondence, administrative papers, photographs and newspaper clippings regarding Brooklyn’s Ditmas Homestead. There is also some material on Brooklyn College’s administration of this homestead, its caretaking by Richard Armstrong, attempts to save the house as a landmark, and its eventual demolition to build (Brooklyn College’s) Student Union Building.
