Collection on University Faculty and Staff
For researchers interested in the growth, development, achievements, and character of the Brigham Young University faculty and staff, the compiled sources available in the University Archives Collection on University Faculty and Staff (UA 909) is a valuable resource. The collection includes a wide range of sources aggregated by archives staff and filed under the name of each individual between the 1970s and the early 2000s.
While attempts were made to comprehensively document faculty and administrators from the founding of the school in 1875, the scope of the individual files in the collection varies widely. For prominent individuals such as university presidents there may be more than a box of letters, forms, memorandums, biographical sketches and photographs. For other individuals, only a single clippings from a newsletter may be available. Nevertheless, these files can provide unexpected and important information on the lives of the men and women who have worked to make Brigham Young University what it is today.
To improve access to these materials, the finding aid for these materials has been revised and a new version made available in the finding aids database (see above for link). Researchers may use the search box on the right side of the page to look for particular individuals, or the finding aid can be browsed using the navigation boxes at the bottom right.
