Mission Statement

The mission of the Archives of the Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE) is to maintain, preserve and make available the records, manuscripts, and other items of historical significance that document MSOE’s past. The collection includes records from administrative offices, academic departments, and student organizations. Student newspapers, photographs and artifacts are also represented. The collection also includes the records of the Milwaukee County General Hospital Alumni Association (MCGHSN-AA), which now incorporates graduates of MSOE’s nursing program into its organization.

Reference Services

The Milwaukee School of Engineering provides reference services for our archival collections. Requests for this service can be made by sending an email to archives@msoe.edu. Requests will be completed as time allows; because of the nature of research, some requests may take longer. Requests from MSOE affiliates will take precedence. After a request is made, a member of our staff will contact you with an estimated time frame for when the request will be filled.

Fees may be charged for archival research, archival document copying and photographic reproductions. Contact the MSOE archivist for more details.

Digital Collections

Digital collections include photographs, school publications, and other archival items that are part of the Archives. These collections document various histories at MSOE, including engineering education, radio history, student life, and other topics.
