About the UND Chester Fritz Library Special Collections
The mission of the Elwyn B. Robinson Department of Special Collections, Chester Fritz Library, is to identify, acquire, preserve, and make available published resources and historical records, regardless of format, that document the political, economic, social and cultural heritage of North Dakota, the Red River Valley, the city of Grand Forks, and UND. The collection—a nationally known genealogical research facility, especially noted for its unique collection of Norwegian Bygdebøker—is named after longtime UND History professor Elwyn Robinson, author of a widely referenced history of North Dakota.
