The UAH Archives and Special Collections

UAH History

Records of institutional activity at UAH are deposited and serviced from Archives. Representative agencies embodied here include the President's office; the Library itself; various academic departments (Art, History and Information Systems); various collections of papers of chief executives (Phillip Mason, Ben Graves); and such administrative/academic agencies as University Relations and the Research Institute.

UAH Photographs

The UAH Archives and Special Collections Department has a large photographic collection of campus buildings and events dating from the founding of the university. Because many photographs are unidentified, it is very helpful if patrons can visit the archives to review, scan, and save the images themselves. We have a laptop and scanner available for researchers to use.

A selection of photographs have been scanned and added to our digital content management system. You can view them here.

Feel free to contact archives@uah.edu if you have any questions about the photographs or would like to request a copy.
