Archives & Special Collections

The Archives & Special Collections collects, preserves, and makes available materials of lasting historical value that support research, teaching, and administrative activities at the University of Puget Sound. Our collections document the history of the university since its founding in 1888 and include administrative records, student publications, photographs, and ephemera relating to campus life, among other items. The A&SC is also home to manuscript collections, rare books, and artists books in subject areas that support the current teaching interests at Puget Sound, including but not limited to the people, history, economy, and politics of the Pacific Northwest region and materials that highlight the experiences of marginalized and underrepresented peoples.
