How to research in archives and good starting points.

Welcome to the Staubitz Archives

Founded in 1930 as the Historical Society of Carthage College, the Staubitz Archives exists to document the life of Carthage College. For over eight decades, we have collected, preserved, and provided access to records and artifacts representing the rich history of Carthage College, the publications of staff and faculty, and the activities of the Carthage community. Our collections include administrative records, college publications, photographs, audio/visual media, and materials related to student organizations and academic pursuits.
