Founded in April 1966 by Brother James Posluscny, C.S.C. with the goal of preserving the College's history, the College Archives currently holds more than 600 linear feet of records, photographs, and artifacts from the mid-eighteenth century to the present.
The archives are organized according to the College’s governance structure. Holdings include the papers from past presidents, deans, academic departments, administrative offices, and student organizations. In addition, the archives house various Stonehill publications, a large photograph collection and a video collection of College events dating from the early 1980’s to the present.
Various artifacts relating to the College’s history can also be found in the archives. Ranging from athletic jerseys and plaques, to class mugs, student organization t-shirts, and freshmen orientation quilts. Included among this body of artifacts is the Daily Homestead Archaeology Collection, which contains artifacts that date to as early as the mid-eighteenth century.
