Cowles Library has long been the home of numerous biography files on a combination of Drake faculty, alumni, and administrators. In August 2010, Cowles Library began archiving these files for researchers, as well as preserving them for future generations.
The approximately 3,360 files in this project have now all been archived. Every name has a “biography sheet”, and many also have accompanying newspaper articles, campus announcements or memos, and photographs.
Go to our Finding Aid to see whom you can find in our biography files.
