Index of Students of the University of Virginia, 1825-1874

Authored by Jean L. Cooper

The University of Virginia opened its doors to students in 1825, and has enrolled students every year since that date. The annual Catalogues of the University list the officials, administrators, faculty, and students of the University in a given year. This is an index of those student lists, with 9,000 names in alphabetical order, to help the researcher verify whether a given student attended U.Va. and in which classes. Catalogues were published for every year-except for the years 1861-1865, which were published in one Catalogue at the end of the Civil War. The Index includes 1) the student's name, 2) the student's home residence (county, city, or state-this information varies by year), and 3) which session the student is in. The Catalogues themselves also list the "schools attended" at the University, i.e., the student's curriculum for that year, and each student's residence or boarding house while at the University.
