The collections include annual reports, minutes, correspondence, wills, deeds, contracts, leases, bylaws, manuals, ledgers, publications, blueprints, photographs, audiovisuals, student transcripts, old patient records, and a limited number of artifacts. Some of the material dates back to the beginning of each institution.
