Researching Individuals at the University

Special Collections has multiple avenues to find information about people associated with the university.

In addition to the records and publications below, Special Collections has brief bio cards for faculty and alumni, most associated with the university thru the 1960s. The faculty cards are alphabetically arranged and some point to additional resources. The alumni cards are arranged in three ways: alphabetically, by major, and by class. Special Collections also has Alumni World War II cards.

Directories

Special Collections has directories listing students, staff, faculty, university officials, alumni, and departments from 1891 through the present, but lists of students, employees, and alumni can be found in the university catalogs starting in 1872.

Below are the catalog records for all the directories and registers that we have. Copies of most directories are kept in the Reading Room, and patrons can easily look through them as they need.
