About this collection

The Bracken Family Collection contains the records of the Bracken Family of Indiana, noted for their philanthropy and service to the Ball State University and Muncie communities. Spanning four generations of family history, the collection includes materials dating to the 1860s when William H. Bracken served as a Captain in the Civil War and spans until the early 2000s upon Frank A. Bracken’s retirement from public service. The collection includes letters, personal papers, photographs, and ephemera highlighting the accomplishments of the family.  Print materials from these collections are held in Archives and Special Collections at Ball State University Libraries.

The digitization of this archive and the creation of this digital collection was made possible through a generous grant from the George and Frances Ball Foundation.
