Robert J. Williams served as director of publicity for St. Lawrence University from 1948-1956 and later as SLU Registrar from 1968 until his retirement in 1981. Before his affiliation with the University, Mr. Williams spent the years 1944-1948 as a writer and editor of the Watertown Daily Times based in the Canton area.

The collection contains two scrapbooks of newspaper clippings representing various events and happenings that Mr. Williams wrote about between 1944 and 1955. Some of the articles represent coverage of St. Lawrence University-related events, as well as non-SLU stories written while he was employed by the University. Several pages contain hand-written notes, presumably by Mr. Williams, wife, Maxine.
