Historical Collections


In addition to the records of Wyoming government, the Wyoming State Archives has collected a small but significant group of manuscript collections documenting various aspects of life in Wyoming.  These include personal papers (letters, diaries, photographs, scrapbooks, writings), business records, and records of clubs and organizations.  A small library of books, pamphlets, and other published items about the state is also maintained as a reference collection to aid in the study of Wyoming history.

Historical collection strengths include oral histories of Wyoming lives and subjects, women’s clubs and organizations, maps, photographs, newspapers from around the state, city and state directories and phone books, histories of Wyoming towns and counties,  genealogical publications and locally-produced obituaries indices.
