Historic documents from the Museum Archives

The Museum Archives collection dates to the creation of the Field Museum of Natural History and its emergence from the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition.  This collection is comprised of the administrative records of museum departments, museum material culture and the scientific papers of staff members from 1893 to the present. Its holdings encompass nearly 1,800 linear feet of paper material and original museum motion picture films.
