University Archives Director Elisabeth Kaplan said the University Archives are different from other collections since it isn't necessarily the materials themselves that are valuable like a rare book is, but rather the information the materials hold.
Kaplan said material that could be saved for the archives is often overlooked. In fact, it wasn't until the University's 100-year anniversary in 1951 that the University started to save its materials seriously. Researchers began gathering materials for the centennial in 1947 but quickly saw there wasn't much to show without better archival efforts. Now with the breadth of materials the University has, Kaplan said the archives often are resources for administrators when making decisions such as whether to close a college or program. "If you work here long enough, you realize that things come around again and again," Kaplan said. "When the General College closed [in 2006], that was like the fourth time it had been suggested … [there were] all kinds of task forces and committees to study." Roaming the caverns, Kaplan reached for a box of documents dated back to 1874, during William Watts Folwell's tenure as the University's first president. Sifting through handwritten notes on pieces of scratch paper, Kaplan said she guessed they were from the president picking which courses the University would teach. "It's amazing when you look at some of these things," Kaplan said.
