Administrative History

The Bureau of Administrative Studies (1955-1957) was an administrative research office at Brigham Young University.

The Bureau of Administrative Studies was established in April 1955 by President Ernest L. Wilkinson to conduct institutional studies about the operations, personnel, and students of the university. The bureau was discontinued following the departure of its director in 1957, and its functions transferred to a university vice president.

The director of the bureau was Arthur D. Browne (1955-1957).
