Keene State College Archives
About these Archives
Materials about Keene State College, including its former incarnations as Keene Normal School and Keene Teachers College, which have not been published or printed for a wide audience, are kept in the Archives. With collected material from the Library, the Office of Alumni and Parent Relations, the Office of College Relations, and the Office of the President, we have begun to gather the core of an Archive of documents that together tell the story of the college. These include such items as newspapers, newsletters, annual reports, Senate minutes and documents, reports of special committees, and accreditation reports. These materials may not be represented at the item level in the library catalog.
