.25 Linear Ft. Contents List

Chronologically arranged files of correspondence, ledger sheets and monthly statements. The Inn was originally located in Dodd House and operated by the Dodd family. A group of alumni, including Garfield, purchased the house in 1909 and named the establishment the Williams Alumni House. Their desire was to provide alumni and guests of the college a place to stay during their visits. L.G. Treadway took over management of the Inn in 1912 and changed the name to the Williams Inn to attract more business. Ownership of the Williams Inn was gradually turned over to Williams College and Treadway began leasing the Inn in 1934. Correspondence and statements from Treadway reveal an especially enduring commitment to the Inn despite financial troubles.
