The University Archive maintains the recorded history of Otterbein University, through documents, photographs, artifacts, and publications of the students, faculty, staff, administration, and alumni of the University. The Otterbein Room also holds some materials pertaining to the United Brethren Church (later the Evangelical United Brethren Church, and today the United Methodist Church), mostly that which has a direct connection to Otterbein University. A small amount of Westerville historical material that relates to Otterbein is also maintained. In addition, the University Archive holds old, rare, and autographed books from the collection of the Courtright Memorial Library for preservation.
The University Archive is located on the lower level of the Courtright Memorial Library and observes regular hours Monday through Friday: 9:30 A.M. to 3:30P.M. Please contact Stephen D. Grinch, Archivist (614-823-1761) for more information or to request materials.
