Jane Carlson Williams ’60 Archives

Lakeside School’s Jane Carlson Williams ’60 Archives is a collection of historical records and artifacts that documents not only the history of Lakeside and St. Nicholas schools, but the story of independent education in Seattle and the Northwest and the people who have helped shape that history.

The archives exists in order to preserve and make available the records and artifacts in its collection, and is open Monday-Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. View an overview of our collections, and more detailed information about our collections management policy. Contact the archivist to schedule a visit to view materials from the collection. Please review our access guidelines before your visit.
