Abstract

The collection contains departmental records, financial records, and correspondence. The materials include annual reports, corporate minutes, course materials for student teachers, and budgets.

Administrative History

The College of Education began as the Church Teachers College, which then became the School of Education. In 1921, newly appointed President Harris created the College of Education from the School of Education. The College of Education was accredited by the Utah State Board of Education in 1921. This insured that graduates would not have to take any special examination to teach in Utah. The college had two divisions: academic department and training schools. Students could major in education or major in teaching from any other department. The college continued to grow, and during the 1930s and 1940s the college enrolled approximately 20 percent of all students attending BYU. In 1954 the college moved into the David O. McKay building and by 1998 the College of Education had become the David O. McKay School of Education.

Arrangement note

The collection has been arranged into three series. I. College of Education departmental records, 1955-1982. II. College of Education financial records, 1981-1982. III. College of Education correspondence, 1976-1980. The materials have been left in the original order. The order appears to be grouped by subject.
