About the Archives

The mission of the New Mexico Military Institute Archives is to collect, preserve, arrange, and make available for research purposes historical materials documenting the intellectual, cultural, administrative, and social life of New Mexico Military Institute from its founding in 1891 to the present. The holdings include administrative records; selected manuscripts and publications; photographs; maps and architectural drawings; and oral histories, memorabilia, and scrapbooks. Archives materials are available for use by cadets, faculty, and staff, and by other researchers upon request.

Appointments are strongly recommended for out-of-town visitors, since we have a small staff and on rare occasions have unexpected changes in our hours. Simply call or email a few days in advance of your visit to confirm our hours and to give us information about your research topic so that we can have material ready for you.

The Archives is located in the Paul Horgan Library in Toles Learning Center. Visitors will need a visitor pass, available at the Command Post in Hagerman Barracks. After you enter the building, stop at the Circulation Desk and staff will direct you to the Archives.
