Archives: About the Archives

We believe in the importance of facilitating the dissemination of knowledge and information in order to provide a broad view of history. In doing so, we acknowledge that materials in our collection reflect the attitudes, perspectives, and beliefs of different times and should be considered records of the era in which they were produced. As they arose in different eras, they do not always represent the values that Lander University holds today.
