Contents List

Subseries 61a - Administrative Policy Records of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Office of the Dean, 1918-1968 (bulk 1918-1955) 3.3 Linear feet. 8 boxes.

Most of the records were generated during the terms of Townes R. Leigh and Ralph E. Page, although it does contain some earlier materials of James Nesbitt Anderson. Only a few files from the period 1955-1968 are included. Of special interest are a 1948 report on the status of the college, a folder on the creation of the School of Business Administration (originally a part of the College of Arts and Sciences), budgets for 1920-1941, and a file on the organization of the General College (later University College). The series includes memoranda to the college faculty, part of which is included in Series 65, Minutes of the faculty of the College of Arts and Sciences. The University Curriculum Committee is also well documented as is the Equity Committee.
