Thunderbird Archives

The Thunderbird Archives capture 75 years of history (first as a military training facility and then as a school) in photographs, papers, reports, publications, oral histories, memorabilia, and other objects. The goal of the Archive is to continue to document the Thunderbird experience from all perspectives and preserve the school’s legacy for future generations of the Thunderbird community.
