Repository description (extant): Established in 2004, the mandate of the University Archives is to identify, preserve, make available, and incorporate into the curriculum archival records and papers of enduring value documenting the growth and development of programs, and the people, campus, and events in the life of the University. The secondary mission of the Archives is to serve as a research destination by developing a robust, comprehensive archival collection documenting the history and development of Cobb County and the northwest region of the state of Georgia.
University Archive holdings include records, papers and audiovisual material from the founding of KSU in 1963 to the present day. Among these are the papers of first and second presidents of KSU, Dr. Horace W. Sturgis and Dr. Betty L. Siegel, respectively. Faculty papers include those of Dr. Helen Ridely, dean of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences and chair of the influential View of the Future Committee, established by Dr. Siegel in 1981. The Archives also houses yearbooks and the student newspaper, The Sentinel, the only KSU publication to be produced continuously from 1966 to the present date.
