Pursuit of Excellence (Rockefeller Report on Education), 1958-1960
Collection Description & Creator Information
The collection contains eighteen series, which consist of correspondence and memoranda, reports, speeches, publications, and related materials, which were created or received by Robert Goheen and other members of the President's office. The filing system was shared by Ricardo A. Mestres, Financial Vice-President and Treasurer, and Edgar M. Gemmell, Administrative Vice-President. In addition, Series 18 includes the files of two assistants to the president. Some of the speeches in series 8E were replaced by speaking copies, found among Goheen's personal papers, which were donated to the Seeley G. Mudd Library in 2002 (MC 204). The office's index cards to the records can be found in Series 18F. Because of the presence of index cards to the records (Series 18F), folder titles have been kept intact as much as possible. Subcategories are indicated with double hyphens in the finding aid (for instance "Art and Archaeology–Art Museum–Security"). Each series or subseries starts with "general" files, which are followed by alphabetical files. When the word "general" was used as a sub-title in the original filing system, it was taken out.
