Welcome to the Staubitz Archives
Whether you are part of the Carthage community or a member of the general public, the Staubitz Archives welcomes you to use its collections.
Founded in 1930 as the Historical Society of Carthage College, the Staubitz Archives exists to document the life of Carthage College. For over eight decades, we have collected, preserved, and provided access to records and artifacts representing the rich history of Carthage College, the publications of staff and faculty, and the activities of the Carthage community.
Our collections include administrative records, college publications, photographs, audio/visual media, and materials related to student organizations and academic pursuits. Select collections, such as our yearbooks, are accessible in digital form online.
Explore one hundred and sixty-five years of Carthage history at the Staubitz Archives!

The closest parking to the library is in lot I and the visitor parking across the street from Lentz Hall. Keep in mind that Thursday and Fridays during the school year are frequently admissions special events and visitor parking may be scarce. If you plan on coming on a day that you suspect may be busy, please call ahead to the archives with your license plate number, and the date and hours you plan to be on campus and we can arrange a temporary parking permit for you.
