Our purpose is to collect, preserve, and make available research materials about the West Florida region, its history, people, and development from earliest settlement to the present, including Spanish, British, and French rule. Special emphasis is given to the ten counties of the Florida Panhandle. We are also the University Archives for the history of the University of West Florida including student life and campus history.
