Summary

"The Caltech Archives were formally established in 1968 to serve as the collective memory of the California Institute of Technology. Our mission is to preserve and make accessible the institutional records, personal papers, documents, artifacts and pictorial materials that tell the school's history."
[Description taken from site.]

The website provides access to oral histories and an image gallery. Most of the archival holdings have not yet been digitized, although there is a section entitled "Lab Notes Online" which enables access to digitized laboratory notebooks.

The archival finding aid for the manuscript collections is accessible via a link to the Online Archive of California.
