University Archives holds inactive yet important university records, personal papers and business records of significance to our region. Examples of archival holdings include photographs, maps, the Deutsch Northwest Clipping and Pamphlet File, University History File, Compendium of EWU Historical Data and manuscript materials.
Special Collections are principally a collection of books and periodicals related to the history and government of the Pacific Northwest. Other collections in our possession include rare books, autographed copies and limited editions, many 19th century U.S. Government Documents, the Ye Galleon Press Collection and the Almeron T. Perry Science Fiction and Fantasy Collection, a research collection of uncatalogued books and periodicals representing this genre.
