About Us

University Archives stacksWelcome to the University of Maryland University Archives blog.  We use this space to showcase some of the interesting materials that make up our collections.

University Archives serves as the collective memory of the University of Maryland, from the granting of the charter for the Maryland Agricultural College on March 6, 1856, to the present day.

Established by the Board of Regents in 1972, the Archives is the official repository for all of the university’s permanent records and actively gathers administrative files, university publications, photographs, audiovisual materials, and memorabilia that document all aspects of campus life.

    Alumni here (’96 PYSC) I just read your “20 Places you may not know exist on UMD’s campus” I can’t believe you left out the school’s nuclear power plant! It was part of the engineering school and back in the day some students wrote op-eds to the Diamondback demanding that it be shut down out of radiation concerns
