The Frank C. Arganbright Genealogy Center houses the Alameda McCollough Research Library, Richard B. Wetherill Archives and the TCHA Administrative offices and collections storage. This building is named in honor of the support of Frank C. Arganbright (1919- 2008). Arganbright worked at the Journal and Courier from 1949 to 1972 as a reporter and editor. He was senior editor of the Purdue Office of Public Information in 1972 and worked with the Purdue University News Service until 1985.
