Search the Wesleyan University Archival Collections

Search for documents, manuscripts, letters, photographs, scrapbooks, posters, ephemera, and much more that are part of the University Archives’ collections.

Our collections fall mainly into four major types: administrative records, alumni papers & documents, faculty collections, and a small group of non-Wesleyan manuscript collections. Collections will have different levels of description depending on if the collection has been described by staff and students.

Please note that several administrative collections may have access restrictions placed upon them.

This is not a complete list of our archival collections. If you are looking for something specific, please send us an email to the SC&A staff at For details about how to access and use our collections, please go to the Research section of our website.
