Archives & Education
The Studebaker National Museum Archives (SNMA) possesses the surviving corporate archives of the Studebaker Corporation, the Packard Motor Car Company and local South Bend industries.
The Studebaker National Museum Archives Center is located in a renovated 19th century commercial building located just south of the Museum. The collection includes an image collection with over 100,000 images, company publications, engineering drawings, sales literature, and dealer and production records. The oldest records date to 1854, and the photo collection dates to the 1890’s. A research room is open to the public by appointment.
In-person research is available in the Studebaker National Museum Archives Reading Room. Researchers must have specific inquiries. The first 30 minutes of in-person research are free of charge during open hours; regular rates apply thereafter. Please call the Archivist to set an appointment at (574) 235-9067. (Fees apply immediately.)
Should a visit not be possible, the Archives staff is happy to research your inquiry for you. Research fees apply.
Please contact us for more information on the Archives.
