About

The Whitman College and Northwest Archives curates materials that document the history of Whitman College and the Walla Walla region as well as rare books and other special collections housed in the Penrose Library. The archives collects, preserves, provides access to, and promotes the use of these materials for teaching, learning, and research.

The Whitman College Digital Collections provide access to digitized historical materials from the College Archives, the Northwest Manuscripts Collection, and other special collections in the Penrose Library. We are currently in the process of moving select collections to this repository. You can view our currently available digitized materials on our Digital Collections page.
