The Eureka College Archives collects, organizes, preserves and makes available institutional records of lasting historical, administrative, legal and fiscal value.  The archives provide research assistance to administrators, faculty, staff, students and the general public. The collection contains print and non-print materials, including the minutes of trustee and faculty proceedings, college catalogs, records of student organizations, as well as records of the intellectual activity of past and present faculty as well as noted alumni.  Eureka College is also the alma mater of the alumni of Abingdon College, whose merger with Eureka College was formally recognized in 1885.


The Eureka College Archives are located on the lower level of Melick Library. Hours are by appointment. Please contact Cassandra Chapman at 309-467-6425 or email for more information or to schedule an appointment.
