The Historical Collection of the Rudolph Matas Library maintains a collection of diplomas, certificates, awards.

Tulane is well represented in the collection, but many institutions' documents are represented from the United States, the Americas and Europe. The earliest documents in the collection are those of Isidore Labatut which includes a passport from 1814, and diplomas from 1817 and 1818 awarded by Academy of Monteillier, France. The most recent document currently in the collection was awarded to Rudolph Matas, the Condecoracion de la Orden Nacional de Merito Carlos J. Finlay, conferred by the president of the Republic of Cuba on December 3rd 1957.
