Archives and Manuscripts Collections Master List

The master list groups the Calumet Regional Archives' collections by general subject category. Most of the collections have an inventory describing the contents of the particular collection. Some inventories are more detailed than others--many collections enjoy detailed collections lists, while others have only a brief abstract or preliminary inventory. To view the inventory for a particular collection, choose if you want the tablebased or non-table based version and click on the appropriate link.

Archives and Manuscripts Collections Keyword Subject Index

We also have available a keyword subject index to those collections for which electronic inventories are available. You should use this index if you are seeking a specific subject or if you want to identify all the collections relevant to a particular topic.

Visual Materials

The Calumet Regional Archives contains over 7,000 images depicting a variety of people, places, and events in northwest Indiana history. The following lists describe photographs, postcards, and slides in cataloged collections; the materials are arranged numerically by collection number.

Many other images are housed in collections not yet organized or processed. For information on visual materials in unorganized collections, contact the Archivist.


The Calumet Regional Archives houses maps of Lake and Porter Counties, municipalities, and the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. The map list is organized alphabetically by city, county, and the Lakeshore.
