Tufts History

The Tufts University Archives, managed by Digital Collections and Archives, documents the history of the Tufts University from 1852 to the the present. The University Archives consists of several thousand linear feet of records including administrative records (presidents, provosts, deans, and department records, faculty files, undergraduate and graduate student records) photographs and other audiovisual materials; and publications that document the history of Tufts University. The University Archives includes theses and doctoral dissertations. All University Archives are described in online findings aids in the Tufts Digital Library. From the finding aids you may request to review material in our reading room or request scans.
