Abstract

This collection was originally PM 5, part of the Printed Matter collection in the Archives. A vertical file of sorts, PM 5 was designated as static, and was processed as a permanent collection October 1992. In 1954, Ernest Wilkinson organized the College of Humanities and Social Sciences. In 1965, the College was divided, and the College of Social Sciences was organized. In 1980, a major reorganization combined several departments in the College of Social Sciences, and Family Living into the College of Family, Home and Social Sciences. The deans of the college of Family, Home and Social Sciences are: John T. Bernhard, 1965-1968; Martin Hickman, 1970-1985; Stan L. Albrecht, 1985-1989; Donovan Fleming, 1989-.

Abstract

This collection includes correspondence, annual reports for the college and departments, budget information, meeting minutes, faculty files, dean's files, and recordings.

Arrangement note

The original collection is organized in the same order that it had when it arrived in the University Archives. An addendum consisting of 82 boxes was added to the collection in the Fall of 2003. The addendum included records from several related unprocessed collections. Therefore, the general files were organized chronologically, beginning with the oldest records. In the case of a folder having a span of dates, for example 1952-1978, the processor used the latter date for organization purposes. Under the Faculty files subheading, the papers were kept in alphabetical order. A second group of records pertaining to the collection were discovered in November 2003 and added to the collection as a second addendum--Addendum--1979 Records. This addendum is organized chronologically.

Arranged in two series: 1. College of Family, Home and Social Sciences records, 1956-1978; and 2. College of Family, Home and Social Sciences records addendum, 1952-1998.
