Donating materials to the Webster University Archives

Donations from alumni and the general public play an important role in helping us document the history of Webster University. If you have materials that you would be interested in donating to the Webster University Archives, please contact Kathy Gaynor at 314-246-7811 (toll free: 1-800-985-4279) or at A brief description of the types of items we generally accept is available. Please note that due to space and staffing limitations, some restrictions do apply. All donated materials become the property of the Webster University Archives.

The Society of American Archivists has a brochure called A Guide to Donating Your Personal Family Papers to a Repository which you may find helpful. Donors typically sign a deed of gift which is explained in another SAA brochure, A Guide to Deeds of Gift.

Webster University faculty and staff should see our Transferring Materials to the Webster University Archives page for information on handling items found in university offices and departments.
