The College archives include campus publications like The Highland Echo, the Chilhowean, the Maryville College Bulletin, and Alumni Magazine. The college also has photos and some college ephemera. There are other treasures too - like the "Maryville Handbook" dating back to over 100 years ago, along with course catalogs. Copies of the college yearbook date back over 100 years to 1906.
Together, these publications offer a glimpse into Maryville College's 200 year history. The digitized portion of the college archives are available to search and browse online through a partnership with The Internet Archive at https://archive.org/details/maryvillecollege. Examples of photos from the archives are available from the Maryville College Bicentennial website: https://www.maryvillecollege.edu/bicentennial/photo-gallery/.
The Maryville College Archives is a non-circulating “closed stacks” repository. To view material in our collections, please contact the Maryville College Archivist for an appointment. As staff is limited, appointments are strongly encouraged as only a limited number of researchers can be assisted at any one time. A photo ID is required, and pens are not allowed (pencils can be used for note taking). For copies of research material, bring a camera or USB drive and check out our digital scan and photography policies. A full list of archive policies is available online.
There is also a donation policy currently in development. If you believe you have a unique or rare piece of Maryville College memorabilia, don’t send it just yet – we first need some details. Please email that information to the college archivist to check against the College's collection development policy.
