The Waldorf University archives at the Luise V. Hanson Library contains more than a century of historical records dating back to the establishment of the university in 1903. The purpose of the archives is to organize and preserve material relating to Waldorf and make it accessible to alumni, students, faculty, staff and the community.
If you own items relating to the university and are interested in donating these to our archives, please contact the library at firstname.lastname@example.org. We appreciate donations and are always excited to add to our collection. A complete copy of our archives policy may be found here.
Our digital collections are hosted through the Iowa Heritage Digital Collections, available through the State Library of Iowa at iowaheritage.org. The Waldorf University yearbook collection is hosted on our website and accessible by year. Yearbooks will be added as they become available.
