University Archives

 The purpose of the Westfield State University Archives is to actively collect, document and preserve the history of the University.

The scope of the University Archives includes selected University publications, faculty and student publications, institutional and academic documents, University Committee records, Board of Trustee records,  administrative records, photographs, publicity, and student life records.

The Westfield State University Archives was established in 1975 by Dr. Robert T. Brown, Emeritus Professor of History. Together with Raymond G. Patterson, retired chair of the History Department, they created the Archives we know today.

The University Archives contains material that is of use to students, faculty, staff, researchers and alumni. Included in our collections are yearbooks, photographs, clipping files and scrapbooks and other material all related to university life from its beginning to the present day.

 Featured online collection: Yearbooks and New Student Records (1909-2002)




Westfield State University Archives are located on the sixth floor of the Ely Library. Our hours are Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Please call 413 - 572 - 5281 for an appointment.
