Biographical/Historical Information

The Department of University Relations provides communications and marketing services to the University's academic and administrative units. University Relations advances Northwestern's reputation and identity as one of the nation's leading teaching and research institutions by providing printed and electronic information to a wide variety of internal and external audiences. The department communicates information about the programs, research, history, and activities of the University to the general public, alumni, media, current and prospective students and their parents, faculty, administration and staff, residents of Evanston and Chicago, leaders in business, industry and government, and current and prospective donors.

Scope and Content

The Daybook Materials, which consist, in main, of the daily working files of the University Relations Department, provide an overview of the various responsibilities and projects undertaken by the department.

Items appearing regularly in the folders include press releases, telexes, "The Public Relations News" (published in New York), "The Editorial Projects for Education: 15 Minute Report" (published in Washington), and departmental Weekly Activities Reports of meetings, discussion, media contacts, people "on the air", and other activities completed. Also included are weekly reports from the Development Department on such things as meetings and fund-raising activities.

Semi-regular items consist of City Council Meeting reports, North Shore Public Relations Club information, and "Analysis of Gifts", published by the Department of Development.

The series also includes substantial amounts of correspondence. The correspondence, which related to all facets of the departments' operation, includes interdepartmental correspondence and correspondence with faculty members and staff administrators of the various departments of the university. This correspondence deals with current university programs, issues, faculty members and faculty appearances. Some correspondence deals with the publications produced by the department as well as such departmental business as budget matters and employment inquiries. There is a considerable amount of correspondence and other information relating to medical school programs and events. Also included is correspondence with representatives of various local and national magazines, radio stations and newspapers.

Other items in the series include information about Northwestern faculty members who are specialists in certain areas (for example, The Experts' List). There are other publications which appear irregularly or only once. Finally, there is a variety of miscellaneous material dealing with such subjects as recruitment of students, Northwestern Associate's Luncheons, alumni events, and various special subjects such as the Hugh O'Brien Youth Foundation and the Dinah Shore Show which featured "A Salute to Northwestern."
