Digitized documents from the Lewis Library's collections are now available through Indiana Memory!

Vincennes University Archives

These collections from the Byron R. Lewis Historical Library at Vincennes University highlight the importance of Vincennes, Indiana's oldest city, and the state's oldest college to early Indiana statehood. Initial collections to be digitized include early family papers reflecting the city's French heritage, documents reflecting the origins of higher education in Indiana, and selected early Knox County government records. This project was made possible by a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services, administered by the Indiana State Library.
