Miscellaneous, 1963–1971.

 File — Box: 3, Folder: 3
Identifier: Folder 3
The Records of the Chemical Engineering Department include materials that span the period 1951–1976, however the bulk is from the years 1963–1973. The records consist in the main of memos and descriptive accounts of programs and projects, pertaining to various subject categories enumerated in the container list. In most instances folder headings used by the department were retained, however, a number of recognizable groups of materials not received in folders were arranged and titled by the Archives staff. All materials routinely sent to all departments from various university offices, the Technological Institute or other departments, were removed from this series and filed in the appropriate series.

The Environmental Engineering material is related to work in environmental and health engineering conducted jointly by the Civil and Chemical Engineering departments prior to the establishment of a separate department. The series also includes material pertaining to two Honorary Societies: Sigma Xi, a society for seniors who excel in scholarship in at least two engineering departments, and Tau Beta Pi, and engineering fraternity for upperclassmen with superior scholarship and ability. The Professional Societies files, which include some correspondence, pertain primarily to eligible students (lists are included) and the standards of the chemical engineering program at Northwestern. The three folders of material entitled Placement Information and the materials relating to Visiting Academicians consist primarily of correspondence.
