The Archives collects the personal and professional papers of alumni, faculty, and staff who have had a significant relationship with Huston-Tillotson University, and whose records have long-term research and historical value. These materials are accepted at the discretion of the Archivist and the President of the University.
The Archives does not accept items not directly related to the University’s history.

The Archives does not provide appraisals for archival collections.

Upon receipt of the donated materials, an Acceptance of Gift form will be signed by the donor and a representative from the Archives, transferring ownership and legal rights from the donor to the University Archives. The Archives only accepts archival collections which will remain permanently in the Archives.
If you have materials that fit within the collection guidelines and you wish to donate them to the Archives, please contact the Archivist at dmcghee@htu.edu or 512.505.3079.
