Archives highlights

At the Archives, you can chart Carnegie Mellon’s history: starting with Andrew Carnegie’s letter offering the money to create Carnegie Tech all the way to the present day.  You can look at the first edition of The Thistle, listen to an audio recording of the Scotch ‘n’ Soda performance of Pippin, or read early papers written by Herbert Simon and Allen Newell on artificial intelligence.   

Our collections offer a wealth of knowledge waiting to be explored.
