Our Collection

We have a growing collection of UNH memorabilia and historic artifacts. We consider donations and have accepted over 1,000 items from approximately 100 donors. Donations are most often from alumni and their families and include a range of items from freshman beanies and scrapbooks to costumes and fraternity dance favors.

We are always looking for donations of memorabilia, in particular, items from the 1940s to the present. Please contact the curator, Dale Valena, if you have something you'd like to donate.
