The Utah State Historical Society accepts donations of money, documents, and photographs in order to further the dissemination and understanding of Utah history.

Donors of money may specify the uses of their donations.  If you would like to make a financial donation, please contact director Brad Westwood.

If you would like to consider donating your documents and photos to State History, contact manuscript curator Melissa Coy.  We are interested in historical materials that are unpublished and one-of-a-kind, such as:

  • letters
  • diaries
  • professional and business papers
  • speeches/lectures
  • minutes/reports
  • memoirs/reminiscences
  • photo albums and photographs
  • genealogical information
  • maps
  • artifacts
  • architectural drawings
  • audio and video recordings
  • printed materials

Contrary to popular belief, major newspapers do not need to be saved. They are microfilmed or digitized and are available to a worldwide audience.
