Welcome to the Spalding University Library Archives and Special Collections. 

Our collections include: 

  • institutional records and history
  • college and university publications (newsletters, yearbooks, etc.)
  • historic photographs, audiovisual materials, and ephemera documenting life on campus and beyond
  • alumni, faculty, and administration personnel papers
  • special collections include: Rep. Jim Wayne papers, Muhammad Ali materials, Thomas Merton materials, Edith Stein collection, President McClure materials

Currently, we are in the process of creating an inventory of all items in the archives and special collections. In time, we aim to digitize selections from high-impact collections and make them available online. We appreciate your patience as we manage this ongoing project.
