Kretzmann Collection At Christopher Center


The Christopher Center Library is proud to add the O.P. Kretzmann Collection to their growing online archival offerings. The Rev. Otto Paul Kretzmann was president of Valparaiso University from 1940 to 1968, and this online archive includes his notes, addresses, and sermons dating from 1921 to 1971. Although some of President Kretzmann’s notes are typed, most are handwritten. Archives & Special Collections worked with Valpo students and community members to create transcriptions for many of these handwritten materials so their content could be searchable online.
