Repository description (extant): The Mission of the Joint Archives of Holland [Michigan], a department of Hope College, is to promote the educational mission of Hope College and its partner institutions by actively collecting, caring for, interpreting, and making available the unique historical resources in its care. These resources include the archival collections of Hope College, Western Theological Seminary, area governmental units, and other members who may contract for services at the Joint Archives of Holland. It serves as a history research center for students, faculty and staff of Hope College, for contractual members of the Joint Archives of Holland, and for the general public.
The large collection of oral histories housed at the Joint Archives of Holland was initiated in 1977 with the help of Dr. Elton Bruins of Hope College and continued as a summer project until 2003. Along the way, many other interviews have also been recorded as opportunities arose.
