Manuscript collections come from a variety of sources. Many of the collections relate to rural life in South Dakota but also include the papers of alumni. Most of the collections offer significant insight into South Dakota or the region, but the primary focus of this collection is twentieth century rural South Dakota. These materials may include:

  • Papers, records, and published materials of South Dakota and alumni authors.
  • Modern political papers, including grass roots politics and political figures associated with South Dakota and South Dakota State University.
  • South Dakota and regional materials—including, but not limited to, the papers of organizations, local businesses, community figures, families, and especially material related to farming and its development in South Dakota.

All material is be treated according to the guidelines set forth in individual gift agreements governing a particular collection and the policies and procedures of the Archives.
This collection of alumni and SDSU-individuals include the papers of Rep. Ben Reifel, Virginia Driving Hawk Sneve, Elizabeth Cook-Lynn, and Bert Popowski. Some South Dakota organization also house records here, including the SD Resources Coalition, SD Farm Bureau, SD Nurses Association, SD Humanities Council and the SD Farmers Union.
