Mennonite Central Committee Archives
MCC has long collected and preserved its organizational records in the interest of documenting and making its history accessible for both internal and external use. In 2012, the MCC archival collection was consolidated into two main holdings. MCC archival records are located in the U.S. (Akron, PA) and Canada (Winnipeg, MB), and archives staff in Akron and Winnipeg work together to preserve and provide access to MCC's Archival Records.
Our mandate is to document the history of Mennonite Central Committee and to provide access to valuable resources for researchers, scholars, historians, alumni and current staff interested in the history of MCC.
The MCC archival collection consists mainly of organizational, program and administrative records of the Mennonite Central Committee Bi-National, Mennonite Central Committee U.S. and Mennonite Central Committee Canada. Some private collections and records of affiliate organizations are also collected.
MCC Records Management and Archival Collection policies will be made available upon request
U.S. Office – Monday-Friday, 8am-4:30pm (Eastern Time)
Canada Office – Monday-Friday, 8:30am-4:30pm (Central Time)
To make general inquiries or to access records in MCC’s archival holdings, contact MCC archives staff. Because MCC records are housed in both Akron and Winnipeg, it is in researchers’ best interests to contact archives staff with research requests so staff can identify where relevant records are located and advise on how best to view them before an in-person visit.
Researchers will be required to complete an archives user agreement before accessing records. Please note that some records in the MCC archival holdings may be subject to access restrictions and will not be made accessible.
Archives staff will provide reference services. If research services are required, research fees may apply,
