University of Arizona

We specialize in documenting the history surrounding the university itself, specifically administration and departmental records of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. 

Documents, such as photographs and biographical information, about past students and faculty serve as important historical sources of information. Review our guide for an overview of the collection (published in 1986) and check out our digitized catalogs and yearbooks. University Records created 1958 to the present are maintained by the University of Arizona Records Management & Archives.
