Series 3: Richard R. Spies Files, 1969-1996 (mostly 1988-1996)
Collection Description & Creator Information
The collection documents the activities of three consecutive administrators who held the position of vice presidents for finance, either solely or in combination with the roles of treasurer and vice president for administration: Paul B. Firstenberg (1972-1976), Carl W. Schafer (1976-1987), and Richard R. Spies (1988-2001). Also included are the records of Laurel B. Harvey, who served as assistant vice president for finance and administration under Schafer and Spies. The records consist of subject files, correspondence, and departmental budget reports. Also in the collection are the meeting minutes and notes of the many committees upon which the vice president sat, including the Priorities Committee, the Resources Committee, the Personnel Oversight Committee, and the Community Affairs Committee.
Series 3: Richard R. Spies Files, 1969-1996 (bulk 1988-1996) has been arranged in two subseries, which were received as two separate accessions of material: Subseries 3A contains Spies' files on a broad range of subjects, while Subseries 3B contains Spies' files specifically related to the development of Princeton Forrestal Center.
