Manuscripts & Personal Papers

The Center for Sacramento History actively collects manuscripts and personal papers of individuals, families, businesses, organizations, and community groups that illustrate the social, political, geographic, and cultural history of the Sacramento region. These collections provide unique and vital insights into the past and work in conjunction with the public documents to offer broader details about the region. The wide range of records in these collections – photographs, oral histories, correspondence, recorded performances – supply users with numerous avenues for the information they seek.

The following list, while not exhaustive, represents a broad spectrum of the manuscripts and personal papers held at CSH. The collections not hyperlinked are currently not processed and not generally available for research. Please contact the Manuscripts Archivist if you have additional questions.
