University Archives

 Record Group
Identifier: DPUA
Special Collections and Archives houses the official archives of DePaul University. These are materials (photographs, papers, reports, correspondence, etc.) of enduring historical value to the University that span three centuries, from the founding of St. Vincent’s college in the 1890s to emails and documents produced today. Research about DePaul’s institutional history, as well as the legacy of faculty, staff, and students can be conducted with these materials. There is a natural overlap between Lincoln Park materials held in the Community Archives with the DePaul University Archives materials that show the planning, growth and development of the Lincoln Park campus.
