Special Collections

free exhibit admission this summer to active duty military personnel & their families

There are more than 150 collections given by generous donors that are kept intact in the Archives. These range from the papers of individuals to those of organizations and businesses.

Visitors are welcome to view a list of our Special Collections, as of June 2014. Please note that collections that were recently received or that have not yet been processed are not on the list, and may not be available to researchers yet. We are working on adding the individual finding aids for each collection onto the website. Twenty-four of the finding aids are available through the Online Archives of California website, including an index of the Fenyes-Curtin-Paloheimo Papers, which documents the activities of the family over four generations.
