A Glimpse of the Past

One of Puget Sound's favorite traditions is the Spring Luau, which has been hosted by our Hawaiian students' club, Ka Ohana Me Ke Aloha, for nearly 50 years. This photo is from the 1976 luau. To see more historic campus photos check out our digital photo collection, A Sound Past, at the link below.

Archives & Special Collections

The Archives & Special Collections collects, preserves, and makes available materials of lasting historical value that support research, teaching, and administrative activities at the University of Puget Sound. Our collections document the history of the university since its founding in 1888 and include administrative records, student publications, photographs, and ephemera relating to campus life, among other items. The A&SC is also home to manuscript collections, rare books, and artists books in subject areas that support the current teaching interests at Puget Sound, including but not limited to the people, history, economy, and politics of the Pacific Northwest region and materials that highlight the experiences of marginalized and underrepresented peoples.

The Archives & Special Collections is located on the second floor of the Collins Memorial Library. The A&SC is open Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM. We are also available by appointment. If you would like to schedule a visit, please contact us at archives@pugetsound.edu
