About the Archives

The Library first began collecting the biographies of great women in 1932 at the suggestion of its president, Dr. Louis H. Hubbard, "to serve as role models" to students. The collection has grown since those early days to include:

  • Photographs
  • Clothing and textiles
  • Artifacts
  • Art work
  • Oral histories
