The Archives of Michigan seeks donations of original materials documenting Michigan history and culture. Here are examples of the types of materials that the archives collects:
Our collections cover many aspects of Michigan history. Subjects prominently represented include lumbering, mining, politics, the military and women and minorities. The Archives of Michigan continually works to strengthen its holdings in these traditional areas, while also branching out into new ones, such as architecture and popular culture. We'll neglect no part of our state's heritage.
If you're interested in donating items—or know of any possible donations—then please email us at Archives@Michigan.gov or telephone 517-335-2576.
