Art Department,, 1972-1977


  • 1972-1977

Scope and Contents

Bulk dates 1974-76. Dean Foster.

Contents reveal the particular concerns of the Art Dept., such as requests for new studio space and equipment, as well as the typical issues arising between the Dean's office and departments - budgets, faculty/staff line allocations, evaluations, etc. Personnel issues dominate. Documents include mostly memoranda and correspondence. A portion of the documents refer to a hiring issue that became very contentious and unpleasant and involved issues of scholarship competency and discrimination. Another document explicitly directs the search committee for a new department head to try and find a woman and/or black candidate. This file in particular, contains sensitive material and should be restricted.
