North Carolina State University History

Central to the Special Collections Research Center's mission to preserve NC State history is the collection and preservation of the University Archives, which are the university's legal, administrative, and historical records of enduring value.  The University Archives are comprised of primary source material created or collected by university offices throughout the history of the university, form the late 1800s to the present.  These materials are supplemented by collections of papers, photographs, artifacts, and other materials donated by alumni, faculty and administrators.
