Archives Gift Fund

Archives Gift Fund

Be a Part of History with Archives & Special Collections!

A letter from Andrew Carnegie, a notebook from a student who took one of Albert Einstein’s courses, a hand-annotated script from a George Romero film. Exploring the contents of the archives, as well as the size, shape, texture, and composition of archival objects, adds more than just a physical dimension to learning. It promotes original research where scholars and students draw independent conclusions.

The University Library System (ULS) recently acquired several notable collections, including the archives of horror master George A. Romero and Pittsburgh playwright August Wilson. Your gift to the Archives Gift Fund helps preserve, organize, and make unique collections like these accessible at Pitt now and in the future.

Working with students in Archives & Special Collections at Pitt has been transformative... Primary sources open up conversations about history, including questions about the stories that were never told.
