About the Archives

The McDaniel College Archives at Hoover Library was established in 1969 as the repository for the records of the College that are past their active use cycle and are of historical value, and for other documents and artifacts that are related to the history of the College or of interest to faculty for the purpose of engaging the College's students in scholarly research as an integral part of their liberal arts education.

The McDaniel College Archives oversees three different groups of collections:

  • Manuscript Collections (MS) – Generally, paper/photographic collections produced by, for, and about individuals. Many of the manuscript collections in the Archives are the papers and memorabilia of alumni and faculty.
  • Special Collections (SpC) – Related to a subject or interest and may contain several types of material including books, manuscripts, memorabilia, and other artifacts.
  • College Records (RG) – The repository of non-current official records produced by or for McDaniel College that are kept for the continuing and enduring value to the College's history.

Researchers are encouraged to use all these collections. However, there may be restrictions on some of the collections. If the material you wish to research is restricted, please contact the Archivist.

Collections are non-circulating and must be used in the Archives.
