Abstract

The collection contains materials from the Graduate School that pertain to internships and research. The materials include correspondence, reports, dissertations, notes, awards, and memorandums from 1956 to 1981.

Administrative History

The Graduate program began in 1921 with Christen Jensen serving as chairman. Later, in 1929, the Graduate School was formally organized and Jensen was then appointed as Dean of the school. When President Wilkinson came to BYU in 1961, he organized many of the doctoral programs. In the time since the Graduate Studies program was organized in Riddle's administration, Brigham Young University awarded 9,331 master's degrees, and 882 doctoral degrees between 1960 and 1975.

Arrangement note

The collection has been arranged into two series. I. Graduate School office records, 1960-1981. II. Graduate School internship and research records, 1956-1976. The materials have been left in the original order in which they were found which appears to be grouped by subject.
