Established in 1989 through a grant from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission, the Newcomb Archives contains the records of Newcomb College, the first coordinate degree-granting college for women to be founded within a university in America.

The archives are open during regular hours and by appointment. If you are traveling from out-of-town, we encourage you to contact us first so we may be better prepared to assist your research.
