Manuscript collections

The Special Collections of JMU Libraries house a growing body of several hundred manuscript collections comprising personal papers from families and organizations within the central Shenandoah Valley as well as archives documenting the history of JMU. All of these collections are described in finding aids written by our archivists that describe the scope and content of the materials as well as the creator of the materials.
