University Archives & Historical Collections, Michigan State University

University Archives & Historical Collections cares for more than 160 years of Michigan State University's history. Our mission is to collect the official records of the institution and preserve the legacy of the nation's pioneer land-grant university. Additionally, UAHC houses collections about history, culture, nature, and life in the state of Michigan and the Great Lakes region. As part of the sesquicentennial commemoration of the Civil War, University Archives & Historical Collections staff began transcribing and digitizing its collections relating to the Civil War. These materials—including hundreds of pages of correspondence, diaries, musters, reminiscences, and photographs—are being made available online (http://civilwar.archives.msu.edu/) for public use.
