UWRF Series 1

Title: Chancellor's Subject Files

Inclusive Dates: 1896-1988 (Bulk of material 1950-1970)

Creator(s): Office of the President; Jesse H. Ames, President (1917-1946); Eugene Kleinpell, President (1946-1967); Richard J. Delorit, Interim President, (1967-1968); George Field, Chancellor, (1968-1985).

Quantity: 5 c.f. (5 record cartons)

Scope and Content: The records in this series span the tenure of three presidencies/chancellors, and an interim president. Most of the records in this series cover between Jesse H. Ames in 1917 to the beginning of George R. Field in 1985. Some records also predate the Ames presidency. Sub-series and folder contents will overlap presidents/chancellor. 

The arrangement and sub-series designations is intended to reflect the general organizational structure of the College/University. Up to the Kleinpell era, the president was highly involved with nearly every aspect of the institution. The president had many direct reports, requiring him to be directly involved in many decision-making roles. Records in this series, generally concern topics such as accreditation, general policy issues, funding, new courses, organization, plans for expansion, staffing and other administrative affairs. The files contain copies of correspondence, reports, and background materials, ether created by the president or sent to them by other offices or departments. The files also contain agendas, minutes, and supporting materials from departmental, college, school, and ad hoc committees.
