Mercyhurst to House Ridge Archives

Posted: Updated:

The archives of Tom and Michele Ridge will be housed here in Erie, at the Hammermill Library at Mercyhurst University. The records include more than 1 million documents, and many other items.

 Today, Michele Ridge  showed off some of the items the couple collected during her husband's long career as Pennsylvania Governor, Congressman and Secretary of Homeland Security.

 In addition to papers, the archives include more than 10,000 photographs and 1500 artifacts. Items that can be used by students and researchers.

 Michele Ridge said, "So it is really not about us, it is about who is going to use this to analyze and interpret what he did from congressman all the way to homeland security."

 Archivists say it will probably take them until next summer to go through the entire collection.
