Philip Weltner Library. Archives (Oglethorpe University)
The Archives of the Philip Weltner Library supports the purposes and goals of Oglethorpe University by identifying, collecting, preserving, arranging, describing, and providing access to documents, records, and publications of enduring value relating to the growth and development of the University from its beginnings in Midway, Georgia in 1835 to the present. It further seeks to encourage the preservation of our cultural heritage and to promote an appreciation of the value of archival primary sources in scholarly research.
- The collections include manuscripts, records, photographs, University publications, rare books, journals, and artifacts related to the history of the University and its traditions. They range from 19th century records, pamphlets, notebooks, and correspondence dating from the "Old College," to the more substantial materials which document the refounding of the University in Atlanta in 1913 and its development to the present day.
