Subseries 1D: Schools, 1950-1972
Collection Description & Creator Information
- Scope and Contents
Subseries 1D: Schools, 1951-1972 (bulk 1956-1972) contains correspondence about the programs, research, organization, and history of the four separate Schools within the University: the School of Architecture, the School of Engineering, the Graduate School and the Woodrow Wilson School. The files on the Graduate School include correspondence concerning applications, fellowships, and students, including female applicants. As with Subseries 1B (Administrative–Departments) this series includes confidential information about the strengths and weaknesses, internal tensions, and reorganization of the schools. The School of Engineering, in particular, which was renamed "School of Engineering and Applied Science" in summer 1960, experienced major reorganization. Departments and subdivisions can be found under the most recent name. In 1964 the bulk of Princeton's Engineering Program was shifted to the graduate level.
