Series 2: Courses and Students, 1933-1966
Collection Description & Creator Information
The Department of Near Eastern Studies Records consist primarily of records dating from the departments existance as the Department of Oriental Studies. Included are correspondence, memoranda, printed materials, course syllabi, and other materials which document the activities of the department which is the forbearer to both the Department of Near Eastern Studies and the Department of East Asian Studies. Though the material covers nearly the entire span of the Department, it is particularly strong in its coverage of the late 1950s and early 1960s, when the Department was under the chairmanship of T. Cuyler Young. The Department's sponsorship and hosting of academic conferences and its summer seminar program are also well represented.
Please see series descriptions in contents list for additional information about individual series.
The arrangement of the records at the time of transfer has been retained. Separate groupings exist for undergraduate term papers, files pertaining to graduate students, and records of the summer seminar and summer language program.
