Records of Spokane College, a Lutheran higher education institution that existed from 1905-1929. The records were transferred to Pacific Lutheran College when the Spokane College ceased operations. The records include legal documents, subscription lists, Spokane College Ledger, Spokane College Bulletin and Course Catalog, Collfax, Echo, and Aromaz publications, and photographs.
The Oral History collection contains the recorded interviews of 282 men and women who emigrated from Scandinavia and settled in the Pacific Northwest. The project was started during an experimental course on Scandinavian Women in the Pacific Northwest. Students in the course were encouraged to interview women and learn about their experiences as immigrants to the United States. The project was continued and expanded with support from the president’s office and by grants from the L.J. Skaggs and Mary C. Skaggs Foundation, from the Joel E. Ferris Foundation and the Norwegian Emigration Fund of the Royal Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The project was directed by Dr. Janet E. Rasmussen. Upon completion, the collection was transferred to the Archives and Special Collections Department.
The oral history collection is open for personal and scholarly work. For commercial use, please contact email@example.com.

Course catalogs typically include descriptions of individual courses to be offered in the upcoming academic year. The information included in the catalogs differ by year. Early years included lists of faculty and tuition information. More recent catalogs include general information about the University including campus maps and building information, information on University administrative offices, and other details.
Class schedules printed each semester beginning in 1928 and ending in 2008. Some folders in the collection include summer and interim schedules, preliminary fall schedules, or drafts.
The earliest class schedule in the collection was printed for the fall semester of 1928 by Pacific Lutheran College (PLC). Schedules were printed for each semester and were on single sheets of paper, beginning with letter size and growing beyond legal size as the list of classes grew, until they were printed on folded leaflets beginning in fall of 1946. During the 1956 – 57 school year the leaflet grew into a small booklet, which became the “First Book Edition” in 1968. The first summer catalog was printed in 1953, the first and only schedule for evening classes was printed in fall of 1963, and the first interim schedule was printed in 1970. Beginning in the early 1990s, the summer schedule was included in the fall schedule and the J-Term schedule included with the spring schedule.
