Shelby White and Leon Levy Archives Center

The Archives are temporarily closed to visitors at this time given our campus policies related to COVID-19. Please consider emailing your questions to us.

The Shelby White and Leon Levy Archives Center, the archives of the Institute for Advanced Study, documents the Institute's history and the many significant people that have shaped it. We welcome inquiries from both within and outside the Institute community.

Our reading room is in the Annex of the Historical Studies-Social Science Library (see the Institute campus map). This space features a display case and exhibits rotate regularly. The current exhibit features photographs and biographies of literary authors and critics who have been part of the Institute community, including poets, novelists, playwrights, and theorists.

Staff are available from Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Please explore the links at the right for more information on our collections and services, or contact us via one of the methods below.
