About the archives...


The Rose Archives of the College at Brockport are housed in Drake Memorial Library, and consist of the historical collections and records of the school. From its early days before the Civil War as a "Collegiate Institute" to the comprehensive college of today Brockport has a long and intriguing history.

These unique primary documents allow researching a wide range of topics, for example the history of a particular program like the college radio station or the Stylus newspaper, the origins of a team sport like football, a department, biographical research on a prominent faculty, special groups like the Writers Forum...
