Description of Collection holdings: This repository contains over 12,500 linear feet of paper and photographic records, 7300 rolls of microfilm, and over 4,500 audio and video recordings. The collections date from the 18th century, with the heaviest concentration in the 19th and 20th centuries. Unpublished guides and finding aids are available to the public as well as a published guide on microfiche of the holdings of the four WHMC campuses.
