The Weber State University Special Collections Department is dedicated to preserving the history of its surrounding communities. The Ogden High School Archives is full of irreplaceable and fascinating artifacts chronicling the story of this more than a century old institution. Some of the archival items have already been damaged through improper storage. There has been no set process to catalogue the housed items, making it nearly impossible for community members to fully access the collection. During this project I have safely stored and organized items into labeled boxes and folders. A register of the archives will soon be available on the school’s website giving community members a full view of the collection.
