We house all the Austin Seminary official publications.
Our collections include documentation and photos of Austin Seminary from its founding to today. Here students relax in front of Lubbock Hall in the early 1950s.
We even have the earliest publications, such as this copy of The Seminite from 1925.
Our collections contain materials related to student life, including photos of sports and social events.
Many professors donate their professional papers for future researchers to use. Professor Joekel, pictured here with student Bert Tippit, is one such professor.
Seminary activities weren't all restricted to Austin, as our Gospel Airlift materials prove.
We have many sermons and notes from Presbyterian pastors, including these written by Rev. Charles Leonidas King.
We have scrapbooks documenting everyday life, including this one compiled by Hilda Cunningham, a Presbyterian pastor's wife.
Our collections go beyond Austin, and include materials from all over Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Arkansas. This photo of two men outside a church in Gonzales, TX in 1951 is from our Texas-Mexican Presbytery collection.
We have many items related to congregational histories, including this drawing of the First Presbyterian Church in Waco, TX.
Not all of our collections are papers, as this piece of the Austin Seminary chapel's spire proves. After it was damaged in a 2004 lightning strike, a piece of the rubble was collected by the archive!
Although the majority of our items are related to Presbyterian life, we do have some items, such as this 1952 photo of downtown Austin, that document Texas through the years.
