BHCC Archives

The Bunker Hill Community College Archives contains physical, digital, photo and audio collections.

Two examples of the numerous collections we have in the archives are:

  • Learn about Harold Shively, the college's founding President.
  • Peruse our collection of Third Rail, BHCC's original student-run newspaper.

You can use the Archives to:

  • Conduct research for assignments, papers, and projects
  • Learn more about the history of the College 
  • Learn more about the individuals – faculty, staff, students, and alumni – associated with the college, and hear their stories

To inquire about the archives, make an appointment to visit or if you are thinking about donating any items, please contact Andy McCarthy at (617) 228-2323 or at
