Collection History

The material housed in the Duane Pearsall Collection was collected and maintained by Pearsall during his life, and then maintained by his family after his passing. The papers were gifted to the Gordon Library Archives in batches from Marjorie Pearsall, Pearsall’s wife, beginning in 2010. The collection was completely and finally transferred to the Archives in December, 2013.

The materials were delivered with a loose organization, including item breakdowns for the majority of the folders. The folders themselves had some organization to them. To have respect for Original Order, we chose to maintain the system developed by Pearsall in order to categorize and digitize his collection. 

The physical collection is open for research by appointment at the Gordon Library Archives. Archives staff request 48 hours’ notice for appointments.

The Duane Pearsall papers are accessible as part of the historical collections in the WPI institutional repository, DigitalCommons@WPI.

In 2015-17, the processed collection was fully digitized, and can be viewed at http://digitalcommons.wpi.edu/ms055-pearsall/
