The University of Pittsburgh has a rich and colorful history, much of which is documented in publications and photographic images held by the University Archives. A set of key materials that reflect portions of Pitt's documented history is online.
This Web site greatly expands access to material that is frequently sought by students, faculty, and staff to support their research and scholarship needs. More than 200,000 pages of text are searchable along with hundreds of images that visually depict some of the many people, buildings and events that comprise Pitt history.
The only known surviving manuscript from The Pittsburgh Academy days is a notebook belonging to alumnus, Joseph H. Larwill; it contains several miscellaneous letters and numerous lessons on mathematics, including geometry, simple and compound interest, and fractions.
