Scope and Content

The minutes of faculty meetings of the Kellog School of Management and its predecessors fill four boxes and four volumes, and span the years 1908-1977, with some gaps. Topics include committee reports, registration statistics, scholarships and fellowships, course requirements, and actions taken by the faculty.

The minutes record topics discussed in the meetings, such as committee reports, registration statistics, scholarships and fellowships, and course requirements. Also included are records of actions taken by the faculty. The earlier minutes include student petitions, faculty Senate regulations, and correspondence pertaining to personnel matters.

Five folders hold the Faculty Minutes Index. The index spans the years 1911-1971, and is arranged alphabetically according to subject title.

In addition to the foldered minutes are four bound volumes of minutes. These span the years 1908-1943, and in many cases duplicate the minutes contained in the foldered and boxed minutes. Since there are gaps in both sets of records, it is advisable to consult both the foldered and the bound records when searching for a specific meeting date.

Arrangement of Materials

The folders are arranged chronologically, with the most recent minutes including agenda of meetings, memoranda, committee reports, and proposals.
