Collections Overview

Since the 1970s, Medical Center Archives has played a vital role in preserving and providing access to the legal, administrative, and historical records of the Medical Center and Health System administrative offices, department chairs and chiefs, and faculty. By preserving the Medical Center's documentary heritage, the Archives makes it possible to study contributions of members to the Medical Center community and history of the institution.

Current holdings include personal manuscripts, departmental records, oral histories, photographs, artifacts, and ephemera. Collection listings provide folder-level description of materials in restricted and unrestricted collections, both processed and unprocessed.
