Q. Does Peterson Memorial Library have a local history collection?

Our local history collection is narrow in focus, but there are additional resources in the Walla Walla Valley, for those interested in Walla Walla history.


The following is the answer to your question on local history from our special collections librarian. If you have additional questions you can email them at archives@wallawalla.edu

"The quickest answer about local history is yes we do have some, but it is very narrow in scope.  Whitman’s Northwest Archive and Fort Walla Walla Museum have more extensive local collections than we do.

 We have the standard histories of the area in our main stacks.  We have institutional materials and a small amount of College Place things in the university archives.  

 My recommendation is that they contact Whitman’s Northwest Archives or Fort Walla Walla Museum unless it is about Walla Walla College/University."
