Thank you for your interest in the Rockefeller Archive Center. Appointments must be made to conduct research at the Archive Center. The Rockefeller Archive Center welcomes inquiries from researchers interested in learning how the Center's collections might relate to their projects. Research inquiries must be sent to us in writing, via email at, or by fax or mail (email is preferred).

Inquiries should include a brief description of the research project, the names of individuals and institutions that are central to the study, the years covered by the study, and any geographic restrictions on the study. The Center's staff can respond most efficiently and effectively to inquiries that are specific. A staff member will respond with a description of the scope and content of relevant materials in the collections and to schedule an appointment.

Before sending your inquiry, please consult our online collections and catalog, and read our frequently asked questions which include Genealogical questions about the Rockefeller Family or Rockefeller employees and refer to the grants section for a description of the Rockefeller Archive Center Grant Program.
