Welcome to The Thunderbird Archives

Preserving the Legacy, Telling our Story

We collect, organize, preserve and make accessible materials related to Thunderbird's history. Included in our collections are photographs, papers, reports, publications, oral histories, memorabilia, artifacts and other objects. Our goal is to continue to document the Thunderbird experience from all perspectives, preserving our legacy for future generations of the Thunderbird community. During Thunderbird's transition, archival materials are located in offsite storage and access is facilitated by the Archivist (see contact information on the left).  In addition, many many materials have been digitized and are available via links in this library guide.

Items sent to the Archives are intended to be kept as part of the permanent record of the School to be cataloged and preserved. This is not the same as sending materials to long-term storage. Storage materials are usually marked for destruction at some future date. They are not part of the permanent record of the School.

When in doubt, please send the items to the Archives and materials will be evaluated. Thank you for your help in preserving the Thunderbird legacy!
