Archives & Special Collections Wiki - UNB's History at a Glance




This wiki is intended to provide researchers with 'quick' but reliable information about the history of the University of New Brunswick. Most of the information found in this wiki originated from the 'Vertical File' housed within Archives & Special Collections.

The University Archives Vertical File (VF) is an intentionally-assembled collection of predominately print material on a wide variety of subjects related to the University of New Brunswick. This material, a valuable resource for researchers that is often not readily available elsewhere, pertains to the people, places, and events that have shaped UNB’s history. Topics covered in the VF include: campus buildings (residential and non-residential), faculties/departments, prizes/scholarships, named lectures, faculty/senior administrators, and honorary degree recipients. Individual files may contain pamphlets, flyers, brochures, newspaper clippings, magazine articles, and copies of speeches.
