In order to facilitate public access and improve the research experience, the City Clerk Archives created a "Special Collections" access portal. These subjects include compilations of documents from various record series preserved in the City Archives. In each case, the compiler of the Collection is noted. Each Special Collection has been digitized and made word searchable. The Special Collections are not intended to be complete or all inclusive, since researchers will find many other related records throughout the City Archives.



Collections will be posted when available.
