For more information about the University Archives and its resources, please visit our University History LibGuide. In addition, the Fall 2014 issue of Hillviews has an article about the University Archives on pages 34-37.
In fiscal year 2015, the University Archives received its first two digitization grants! This is a great start for making our Hays County and student newspapers more accessible through Digital Collections.
The archivists would like to talk with individuals who may be willing to donate records, memorabilia, photographs, or other items that relate to the history of Southwest Texas State Normal School (1903-1918), Southwest Texas State Normal College (1918-1923), Southwest Texas Teachers College (1923-1959), Southwest Texas State College (1959-1969), Southwest Texas State University (1969-2003), and Texas State University-San Marcos (2003-2013).
Any department, office, employee, or past employee who discovers “old” university records may have uncovered part of the history we want to document. Presidential and provost correspondence, building records, student organizations, and photographs of people and places on campus are highly desired. Please contact the Archives to schedule an appraisal if you discover any records with potential historical value.
The University Archives is located in Alkek 580.
