University Archives


The University Archives serves as a "one-stop-shop" to learn about the history of the University of Redlands. From the founding documents of the University, including its 1907 charter by the State of California, to photographs, memorabilia and records related to life on campus over more than a century, the University Archives preserves and makes available its materials to students, scholars and alumni researchers.

The University Archives serve as the institutional memory of University of Redlands.
