Manuscript Collection

The Robert E. and Jean R. Mahn Center for Archives and Special Collections holdings of over 300 manuscript collections include a broad range of materials and topics. Formats include correspondence, diaries, business and institution records, photographs, maps, prints, publications, audio and video recordings, and memorabilia. Researchers are encouraged to come to the Mahn Center to access the collections, although we are able to provide limited reference and copying services. 

Our manuscript collections are included in the Topical Listings bellow with links to finding aids (or inventories) currently available on our web site. Those collections not linked will be linked soon or are in processing. To access those collection finding aids, please contact us directly. Some collections are listed in several categories to facilitate researchers.
