Dr. Jo Ann Rayfield Archives
The Dr. Jo Ann Rayfield Archives is the official repository for selected materials that document the history of the university and all aspects of university life. Some of the collected materials include official records from governing boards, faculty and student governance bodies, committees, colleges, departments, faculty and student organizations, and the profes- sional and personal papers of faculty, administrative staff and alumni.
