About Us

Our Mission

The University Archives is the official repository for all University related institutional memory as well as identifying, collecting, and making accessible the history of the Mississippi Delta. Institutional records are organized according to the University’s organizational chart, beginning with the earliest records dating to 1924. Our records consist of the materials organically created, accumulated, and/or used by a person or organization during the course of a lifetime and are preserved because of their enduring value.

Themes represented by our collections include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Mississippi Delta politics and politicians
  • Authors
  • Farming traditions
  • Civic and Non-Profit Organizations
  • Public & Private school records and memorabilia
  • Chinese, Italian, Lebanese, and Hispanic cultures
  • Business records and memorabilia
  • Family papers and memorabilia
  • Local artists and musicians
  • Sound recordings and oral histories
  • Women of the Delta
