The Harkin Archives

Drake University is honored to be the home of Senator Tom Harkin’s papers, covering more than 40 years of public service.  Senator Harkin’s papers arrived at Drake University in January 2015. Currently, they are being professionally archived, housed in dedicated space in the Drake University Archives centrally located in Cowles Library on the Drake campus. Select portions of these papers will be open to the public to the extent permitted by state and federal statutes in July 2015. The Tom Harkin Archival Collection includes print and digital materials as well as memorabilia.

Major phase construction for the Drake University Archives facility was completed in September 2013. Major phases of the construction can be viewed on the Cowles Library website.
