Jeffery, director of the college's Drachman Institute, is also its de facto archivist and historian. Showing the papers of the Joesler-Murphey archive, housed off campus, had become a burden.
It was far and away the most popular archive, with demand coming mostly from owners of Joesler homes or the real estate agents selling them, he said.
