Retired Faculty Files of the Department of Public Relations, 1950s - 1970s
Note on Provenance and Arrangement
Staff of the former Department of Public Relations, now the Office of University Relations, created the Retired Faculty Files. These files arrived at the University Archives from the Office of University Relations in Fall 2000 and were processed in Summer 2001. These files highlight the lives and activities of various members of the faculty members.
The original order of the files was maintained. The files were organized alphabetically by the last name of the faculty member.
Scope and Content
The material contained in the files spans equally from the 1950s to the 1970s. Each individual file contains one or more of the following:

The news releases generally provide information regarding the retirement of faculty as well as highlighting the accomplishments, activities and awards of faculty. The information sheet provides us with brief biographical information. The photographs taken by the Department of Public Relations capture faculty in either a standard pose or engaged in a range of activities. The curricula vitae included in the files give insight into the educational and professional background of faculty. Some files may also comprise of correspondence written by, to or regarding the activities of faculty.
