The University Archives provides the key to unlock the stories of Texas State University that connect its past to its present. The Archives preserves and makes available a treasure-trove of materials including original documents, photographs, yearbooks and a variety of artifacts that help tell how the institution has evolved from a small teacher’s college to an emerging research university.
New materials are added to the Archives through the transfer of records from University departments and the acquisition of select items from donors; these materials document the history and legacy of the University and provide researchers with unique sources of information about Texas State and the surrounding community.
Of special note are the accessions of photographic negatives held by the University Archives, which together form the most comprehensive collection of historical photographs related to the Hays County region of Texas, including the photographic archives of the San Marcos Daily Record newspaper
