About The Denison University Archives
The Denison University Archives selects, preserves, and makes available primary sources that document the history of the institution through the lens of its offices, academic departments, students, alumni, faculty, and administration. The Archives collects photographs, University publications, committee meeting minutes, letters and correspondence, student organizational files, audio/video recordings, departmental records, historic artifacts, faculty research files, alumni papers, and more.

Denison University has had a long history of student activism, especially regarding racial tensions felt on campus. Along with materials from the Denison Museum, the library and archives have put together a display on the 3rd floor of the library in honor of MLK Day. See student publications, flyers, photographs, and more that document the past 50 years of protests and boycotts at Denison in the name of racial equality and campus-wide dialogue.
