The Special Collections Research Center's manuscript collections primarily document six main areas of research: the history of science, literature, higher education, politics, planning & development in the Baltimore region, and Johns Hopkins University faculty. Most of our collections are personal archives of individuals who in some way have had a connection with the University, although we do have select records of organizations and businesses.
