If you are an alumnus/a of SU or a community member with significant materials relating to SU’s past—scrapbooks from your student days, a diary you kept while on campus, letters home, records of a student organization you were active in—and you would like to donate them to the University Archives, please contact Ian Post, the University Archivist, at impost[at]salisbury.edu. With the centennial of SU’s founding coming up in 2025, we are looking for records documenting student life. More information on the University Archives can be found at the University Archives website.
The Edward H. Nabb Research Center for Delmarva History and Culture houses outstanding collections on Delmarva’s history and genealogy as well as the University Archives and Special Collections. We welcome members of the community to do research, attend lectures, view exhibits, and volunteer. If you have family diaries and letters, organizational records, business ledgers, or similar materials, please consider donating them. For more information, see the Nabb Center website.
