To make researching easier, some of the archives’ holdings have been scanned and are available online.
The 1880 to 1950 catalogues and all volumes of the yearbook, The Liner, are searchable together. The catalogues for those years are especially rich sources since they list the names and hometowns of students, including those attending the preparatory school Hamline ran until 1914.
Many issues of Hamline’s student newspaper, The Oracle, are available. Currently, the 1888-early 1900s and 1988-2015 issues have been digitized.
Information about Hamline’s large collection of memorials bearing witness to the deceased (ca. 14th-early 20th century in England) and monumental brasses in general.
Historic images and photographs of Hamline University buildings and environs – ca. 1880-2000.
A selection of images that highlight the history of Hamline University athletics (ca. 1888-2001).
A number of images from Hamline’s early days are available through Minnesota Reflections, part of the Minnesota Digital Library in coordination with the University of Minnesota. Also, searchable within Minnesota Reflections are the letters that Effie Loag Osborn, wife of Henry L. Osborn (Hamline professor and twice acting president), wrote to her mother Emily Taylor Loag, during her first year in Minnesota (1888-1889). Letters that Effie and Henry wrote each other during their engagement (prior to their arrival at Hamline) are available through the Hamline University Archives’ Blog.
