The University of Florida Archives supports topical research on the history of the University. It is the custodian of the University's historically significant public records including the administrative files of its past presidents. The Archives also collects the papers and records of individuals and organizations associated with the University and maintains files of yearbooks, student publications, and official University documents.
The Archives' most recognizable component is its extensive photograph collection composed of over 35,000 images depicting all aspects of the University. The Archives is also home to hundreds of films, videos, and sound recordings as well as an artifact and memorabilia collection. Much of the latter was donated by University alumni.
The Archives participates regularly in Alumni Association events and gives tours of the campus historical district and talks on University history.
Contact the University Archivist, Peggy McBride, to donate items to the Archives or to schedule an event.
