Giovanni Costigan Collection

Giovanni Costigan

The Giovanni Costigan Collection is part of the University Archives in Special Collections.

Giovanni Costigan, a professor of history from 1934-1975, remains an important influence and touchpoint for his former students and the broader UW community. With many of his lectures, notes, diaries and photographs currently unprocessed and in rapidly fading media formats, the UW Libraries is raising funds to preserve this important collection for the legions of Costigan fans as well as for future generations.

When you support the Costigan Collection, you are preserving his legacy  — engaging students in the present through the study of history.
