University Archives: Penn State Genealogy

“Could you please send information on my grandfather who went to Penn State in the early 1920’s?” is an example of the many genealogical inquiries we receive about former students. We also receive many requests for information on former faculty members. There are various resources to use to find a Penn State connection, as alumni directories, La Vie yearbooks and student directories. We have files on many current and former members of the faculty and administration that contain biographical information.

Some of the items in the collection can be found in the Penn State Libraries Catalog, "The Cat," but any question dealing with the University or Centre County is worth a visit to the University Archives. Materials do not circulate and must be used in the room, although photocopy services are available. For more information contact Jackie Esposito (814) 865-7931.
