Location and Hours
The materials and resources of the Tuskegee Airmen Archive are available for public access and scholarly research. The materials of the Archive do not circulate, but may be used in the Special Collections & Archive Reading Room by anyone with an interest in the materials. To protect the materials, a valid state issued (any state) identification card is required. The Archive is located in the Special Collections & Archives Department of the Tomas Rivera Library on the fourth floor and is open Monday through Friday from 9 am until 5pm. The collection consists of personal papers and letters, photographs, selected military records, posters, documentation of careers during and after military service, oral histories (videos and tapes), books by and about the Airmen, historical newspaper clippings, films, and memorabilia. Our goal is to contribute to the national effort to document the history of Airmen by collecting, preserving, and making available the full life story of this distinguished group of African Americans
