Kautz Family YMCA Archives
The YMCA, founded in London in 1844, is the oldest and largest social institution in the United States, where it has been active since 1851. The Kautz Family YMCA Archives collects the historical records of its national organization, the YMCA of the USA and also holds records of the Minneapolis and Greater New York YMCAs, as well as those of Y's Men International, a service club in partnership with the YMCA.
The collections document the evolution of the YMCA from its Protestant evangelical origins, including its contributions to Civil War relief, the invention of basketball and volleyball, public health campaigns in China, rural reconstruction in India and Korea, teaching English as a second language, and much more.
Collections currently in the UMedia Archive:
- Emma Young Dickson Papers
Correspondence, diaries and other papers of Emma Young Dickson, documenting her service with the YMCA in France during World War I.
- Foreign Secretary Reports from China
Collection of over 1000 reports written by approximately 120 YMCA secretaries working across China between 1896 and 1949. The reports describe not only the progress of YMCA work in the various cities to which the secretaries were sent, but also local social conditions, politics, and more.

- Trench & Camp Newspaper
A nearly complete run of the Camp Upton (Long Island, N.Y.) edition of Trench and Camp, a newspaper published by the National War Work Council of the YMCA, in partnership with various city newspapers, for soldiers during WWI. The paper was printed in different editions for each of the many camps, with about half the material supplied weekly from a central editorial office, and half by local reporters. Its purpose was “to print the news, to inform, to stimulate, and to help relieve the tedium and monotony of camp life” for soldiers, as well as “to be a graphic account of the life of our soldiers, whether they be drilling or fighting, at home or ‘over there’” for civilians. In addition, each Trench and Camp was a channel of communication to the troops from the President, Congress, and War Department.
