This series documents the composition and activities of the alumni, the Alumni Council, and other alumni organizations. A large section at the beginning of this series documents the activities of the Alumni Council (the University-sponsored administrative arm of the Alumni Association), including Princeton reunions. Other topics include alumni organizations, occupations, regional associations, and long alphabetical runs on doubtful alumni (those individuals whose alumni status is in doubt) and alumni families (families who have sent more than one member to Princeton or who have been deeply involved in the University).
This sub-subseries is comprised of material associated with Leitch's service as University Secretary (1936-1966). Included are discussions and contacts with various committees on which Leitch served, exchanges with other educational institutions, interactions with trustees and other individuals, and involvement with Princeton municipal government. In addition, New Jersey associations and committees figure prominently in this subseries. Also included are discussions of Princeton's involvement with educational radio programming, including some of the original literature used to explore the feasibility of pursuing regularly scheduled educational programs. The subseries contains a copy of Leitch's pamphlet "How to Get the Most Out of a Princeton Education," files on distinguished visitors to the campus, historical information about the University, and a list of "Princeton Men Who Founded Other Institutions." The wide range of material reflects the very visible and central role into which the Office of the Secretary evolved. Folders are arranged alphabetically by the name of an individual, committee, organization, or topic.
The Julian Parks Boyd subseries contains the records of Julian Parks Boyd, who was Princeton's University Librarian 1940-1952. His tenure was a period of immense growth in the Library, both in terms of collections and facilities. As with the records of earlier University Librarians, these records contain correspondence and subject files pertaining to acquisitions, budgets, and other routine administrative matters. This series is also notable however for its illustration of the Library's growing importance to the University, as conveyed by the records which pertain to the planning and construction of Firestone Library, found primarily in the Cooperative Committee on Library Buildings files (Box 26-27).
