Dear Ms. Galzerano,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched online and located a Archives page on UPI’s website. Please contact their customer support staff for more information. We also located material relating to UPI in the Library of Congress. Furthermore, WorldCat and Social Networks and Archival Context have listings for UPI related holdings in various institutions. Also, according to the Library of Congress, Getty Images is the official licenser of pre-1991 UPI photographs.
We hope this information is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
Dear Mr. Atkinson,
Thank you very much for the information you gave me!
I've already contacted UPI's Customer support staff, but they told me that the only accessible archive is the one online. It contains photographs and news (mainly post 1980s) and they don't have archival material like internal correspondence etc.
Thank you again,
