UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls
Collection Summary: This series contains all of the master’s theses (Plan “A”) and master’s papers (Plan “B”) documents written by graduate students at UW-River Falls. Circulating copies of the theses are also housed in the Davee Library general stacks which can be identified using the Voyager Library Catalog.
From research in commencement programs, it appears the first graduate degree was granted by WSU-RF (now UW-RF) in 1965. James Laska was the recipient of that degree. Thus, his master’s thesis, which was written in 1965, appears to be the first one.
