Herrick Archives

John Herrick, former Director of the Office of Campus Planning, created a comprehensive history of campus buildings (through 1988). The information he collected is available in print in the University Archives and Architecture Library as well as two different online portals.

The University Archives created this interactive walking tour of campus history. Like the Herrick Archives, it documents the history of campus buildings and features. You can access it via browser or through the OSU Mobile app.

In addition to the resources described on the other tabs, there are a wide variety of materials only available at the University Archives. These include:

  • Alumni Magazine
  • Centennial Histories (histories of colleges and departments)
  • Commencement Programs (including biographies of honorary degree and award recipients)
  • College, Department and Faculty collections (a full list of collections is available online and inventories can be provided by email on request)

If you are interested in any of these resources, please contact the Archives and set up a research appointment.
