UD Athletic Collection

Research on the history of the Arena began in the UD Archives.  Materials related to the Presidents Papers, Trustee Papers, Athletic Department, and others had remained under seal for 50 years. The students conducting the history were the first to gain access to many of these materials.  During the course of their research they create basic finding aids for many of the previously unprocessed collections.  The following are a small selection of the materials gathered during their research.
