University Archives

The University Archives includes information about our institutional history, higher education in New Jersey, and other special collections, including the Nancy Thompson World War II Letter Collection. This collection offers direct insight and fresh perspectives on World War II and the average social, political, cultural, and racial discourse of the time. Nearly 200 Kean University (then Newark State) students wrote letters to Thompson and other college personnel while serving. This correspondence, including postcards, letters, V-mail, and clippings, outline their experiences, values, and interests.
