University Archives

Tillman Science Construction ca 1912

The Winthrop University Archives is the memory center for all university records of historical significance. It preserves a variety of materials relating to the origin and development of Winthrop, and to the achievements of its officers, faculty, staff, alumni and students. Of special interest are correspondence, photographs, administrative records, speeches and business files that document the work of the University and its components. Please also visit our online Digitized Collections.

A few of the types of collections included within the University Archives are:

  • Board of Trustees Minutes
  • The President’s Administrative Records
  • Records Relating to Winthrop’s History
  • Records Relating to Administrative Offices
  • Records of the Academic Departments
  • University, Faculty, Alumni, and Student Publications
  • Student Organizations and Club Records
  • Theses
  • Memorabilia (Scrapbooks, Uniforms, Reminiscences, etc.)
  • Photographs
  • Vertical and Biographical Files (newspapers, articles, etc. pertaining to the University and Faculty/Staff)
  • Other Records of Administrative and Historical Value

 Many of these records would be lost or destroyed without the Archives’ efforts to preserve them. By storing inactive records in a safe place, the Archives provide an invaluable resource for future reference.
