The Institution's Memory
The primary mission of the New York Military Academy Archives is to collect, organize, preserve and make available for research those materials that help document the history and development of New York Military Academy from its founding in 1889 to the present. The archivist provides individual reference service and answers inquiries from both within and outside the academy.
The archival collections include official records of the academy such as the Board of Trustees minutes; early financial records; student records from 1910-1993; records of the New York Military Academy Realty Co., 1910-1946; extensive photograph collections; uniforms from various periods of the school's history; and large quantities of NYMA memorabilia including programs, scrapbooks and class rings. Student and school publications, including yearbooks, school catalogues and nearly complete runs of the N.Y.M.A. Quarterly, 1889-1901, and The Ramble, 1903-1995, are also housed in the archives.
Gifts to the Archives
The NYMA Archives is continually adding to its collections, and maintains a wish list of items needed to augment its holdings. If you have memorabilia or other material relating to the history of New York Military Academy that you would like to donate, please contact the archivist.
Opened in 1995, the NYMA Museum exhibits selected memorabilia and artifacts from the holdings of the archives that help bring to life the history of New York Military Academy since it's founding in 1889. Permanent exhibits include uniforms and accouterments of cadets, sports memorabilia, a picture postcard history of NYMA, and a display of school medals. In addition, rotating exhibits are mounted from time to time. The museum is located in the academic building.
