Please consult reference staff for details on the availability of specific collections. Theses, dissertations, and prize papers in the Archives date from the late 18th century to the present, and reflect educational trends, scientific research, and developments in many fields of study. These organizations reflect a wide range of interests and concerns, including athletics, music, drama, literature, politics, religion, science, and cultural identity. Organizational records less than 50 years old are subject to restrictions on access.
Click here for a partial listing of Associated Organizations. Visual materials in the Harvard University Archives include drawings, prints, and an extensive collection of photographs. These materials, dating from the 18th century to the present, can also be found among the administrative records of the University, personal archives of faculty, students, and alumni, and the records of associated organizations.
Drawings and prints include 18th century depictions of Harvard buildings and Cambridge landmarks, as well as 19th century mathematical theses and 20th century student protest posters. Photographs date from the s to the present and provide a rich source of information about University life and its environs, as well as illustrating the history of photography.
The images depict students, faculty, visitors to campus, and events, and document changes to the landscape and built environment of Cambridge, Boston, and beyond. Harvard University Archives Photograph Collection: Portraits, oversize list portraits of Harvard students, faculty, administrators, and visitors.
Subjects, oversize list photographs of student life and organizations, dormitory rooms, athletics, military training, and commencement exercises. Views lists photographs of campus scenes, buildings, and Cambridge. Records of the Office of News and Public Affairs: Photographs, lists portraits, views, and photographs of University events. In addition to University records and publications, personal papers, and records of associated organizations, the Harvard University Archives maintains a vast array of primary and secondary sources documenting Harvard people, places, events, and activities.
This material includes biographical files on people associated with the University, subject files on Harvard buildings, athletics, music, drama, and other aspects of student life, and artifacts such as Harvard souvenir china. The Archives also maintains a non-circulating reference collection of books relating to Harvard history, which patrons may consult in the Archives reading room.
A Selected Bibliography for links to online publications. Many items in the collections of the Harvard University Archives document the history of Cambridge, Boston, and the New England region.
Personal archives, such as the papers of the Bordman family , of John and Hannah Winthrop , and of Edward Waldo Forbes document the daily lives of faculty, students, and their families, many of whom lived in New England. Visual materials, such as maps, drawings, and photographs, record the local landscape and built environment through time.

Dissertations are also deposited with ProQuest’s databases and become accessible to subscribers of ProQuest Dissertation & Theses Global. If necessary, students may request to delay the release of (“embargo”) their work when submitting their dissertation to ETDs @ Harvard.
Records Management Services staff facilitate the transfer of theses and dissertations from departmental offices to the Archives. As you prepare for the upcoming academic year, consider transferring this year’s (and/or previous year’s) theses to the Archives this summer. For transfer instructions, see our website.
Networked Digital Library of Theses and Dissertations (NDLTD) is an international organization dedicated to promoting the adoption, creation, use, dissemination, and preservation of electronic theses and dissertations (ETDs). NDLTD is the biggest consortium worldwide for online dissertations. The site operates by a combination of solicitation and self-submission; we try to be on the lookout for dissertations in the field, but we strongly encourage those of you working in Atlantic History in the early modern period to send an abstract to us.
