The Clayton State University Archives needs a variety of items, to begin building a collection surrounding the history of the university's nursing program.

John Shiffert, spokesman for the university, said the Clayton State Archives is in search of items such as photographs, graduation programs, pinning ceremony programs, faculty and staff information and any other item related to the nursing program.

Shiffert said the Archives staff has been actively searching through academic catalogs, news clippings, campus publications, photographs, slides and other collections, in an attempt to keep the history of the nursing program alive.

"I think all the departments [at Clayton State University] are important to preserve, because it reflects all aspects of the university," added Rosemary Fischer, archivist for the Clayton State University Archives.

Individuals who would like to donate items should contact Fischer at (678) 466-4333, or e-mail her at rosemaryfischer@clayton.edu.
