Membership in HASP is by sponsor only with monthly meetings highlighted with special programs held on a wide ranging assortment of courses taught, to a large extent, by the membership itself aided by some Hope faculty. Field trips and special events are held and all activities are directed toward the intellectual and social development of older people who are dedicated to continued attainment and service. The collection includes: Tulip Time Trolley Guide Information script (2001), minutes, programs, correspondence and bulletins, and a series of papers written in 1993 titled the Vignettes of Hope College History that include topics such as: The Holland Academy; The War Years at Hope; Coping with the Post-War Bulge: Hope College, 1945-1950; The Young Gerrit Kollen; Paul Hinkamp (1885-1971); Nella Myer, Marguerite Prins, and Hope College; Hope’s Hungarian Connection; The Hope College Alcor Chapter of Mortar Board; That Beautiful Structure-Carnegie Gymnasium; Graves Hall and Winants Chapel; and Tales of Voorhees Hall. The collection also includes video presentations of Mary Schakel (2012) and Gerald Cooper (2012) from the course Encounters with History.
