Florida Citrus Archives
What we have in the Florida Citrus Archives
The types of materials that we collect are those things that contributed to the history of the citrus industry in Florida: Letters, photos, newspaper clippings, documents, memos, invoices, bills of lading, letterheads, envelopes, notes, diaries, maps, newsletters, drawings and citrus crate labels.
The time frame represented covers that period from early history to the present, but the great majority of our materials fall between 1885 and the present (and most of those span the period from 1920 to the present). Naturally, the more recent history is much more completely represented than the earlier years'.

We are preparing to post a sampling of images from our various collections in the effort to make the archives more accessible to everyone, regardless of their proximity to Florida Southern College.
If you have Florida citrus-related materials that you plan to discard, please read this first!
