Ursuline College was founded in 1871. Our archives chronicle our rich history.
The Ursuline College Archives exist primarily to collect, organize, describe, make available and preserve materials of historical, legal, fiscal and/or administrative value to Ursuline College from its beginnings in the middle nineteenth century.
Researchers may access the Archives' records in person or by remote requests. Regular requests can take up to a week depending on the request and staff availability. Urgent requests can be fulfilled sooner. Due to staff availability, staff will spend no more than one hour on reference requests for requests unrelated to official college business. Contact the archivist for details.
The Archives is open by appointment only. Please contact the College Archivist Mara Shatat at email@example.com or (440) 646-8181.
