|Annual Report of the College Archives Committee|
In the fall of 1957, North Carolina State Archivist, H.G. Jones, was invited to the campus to survey the archives. He was not happy with the current conditions of the archives as he “looked with considerable scorn” upon the cases that housed the archival materials in the Forney Building and Library Building. Following his visit, Jones wrote a letter to Chancellor Gordon W. Blackwell, giving detailed advice on some immediate and long term problems facing the college archives.

The work of the College Archives Committee was the first step in developing an institutional records management program with the aim of preserving the history of the college. Today, the University Archives continues to collect and maintain the documents and records, both physically and digitally, relevant to the history of UNCG.
