CUNY Dominican Studies Institute Archives Major Collections

Members of the Dominican community have donated their personal and/or institutional documents to the Dominican Archives. These donors constitute a cross-section of a large segment of the Dominican population, especially in New York City. The archival materials donated include personal letters, institutional correspondence, personal papers, newspaper articles, minutes of organization and group meetings, magazines, photographs, press releases, newspaper clippings, videotapes, journals, bulletins, personal writings, drafts of literary pieces, certificates, medals, and proclamations. These documents are a valuable resource for the study and reconstruction history, experience and contributions of Dominicans as they established themselves in the United States.

The holdings of the Archives comprise 70 collections with approximately 600 cubic feet of archival materials relating to the experience and contributions of the Dominican population in the United States.
