I am back for my annual update about newly processed collections in Special Collections and Archives. Our finding aids landing page always shows the five most recently published finding aids but across the space of the academic year, thanks to the work of our student assistants, we’re updating and processing many collections. This year, we’ve been working on some larger collections than usual but we’re always hard at work (ask our students!).
The following collections’ finding aids were published across this academic year by myself and Processing Archivist Ashelee Gerald Hill, with support from former Archives Assistant Finley Turner and SCA student assistants:
- Academic Departments. Art Department. Hanes Art Galley Records (RG16.2.1)
- Academic Departments. History Department Records (RG16.12)
- Academic Departments. History Department. St. Benedict’s Oral Histories Records (RG16.12.4)

As usual, I am running a bit behind our students – expect more finding aids to be published across the summer! If you have a specific research request, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Special Collections and Archives to discuss your needs and schedule a visit to the Reading Room.

(esp. the Dolmen Press)
Way to go, Stephanie! I am always in awe of what you, Ashelee, and our student workers are able to accomplish throughout the year. The finding aids are always helpful, and I especially enjoy reading them when I move our collections around. Keep up the great work!
Thanks for such a diverse range of materials that are now available for research.
Impressive! That list is indicative of a whole lot of work! Congratulations, and thanks for getting these diverse collections digitized. Your work directly impacts and benefits researchers.
This is very impressive, Stephanie! Congratulations to the whole team! This is wonderful work!
Congratulations on this extended and comprehensive release of new collections. I had the good fortune to be in Ed Hendrick’s classes in the fall 1963 and spring 1964 semesters and also to remain in touch with him on history and government topics over the years.
What an impressive list! Thank you, Stephanie, Ashelee, and team for your hard work.
