University's Special Collections and Archives where the historical American
Folklore Society Manuscript Collection is housed.
Established in 1972, the Archives is an integral part of USU's cultural studies arena. The Fife Folklore Archives is named for folklorists Austin E. and Alta S. Fife, Utahans who helped shape the field of folklore and worked to preserve the folk expressions of the American West. The FFA is home to sixty collections, including student fieldwork collections, oral history collections and Austin and Alta Fife's fieldwork collections.
