Scope and Contents

From the Collection:

The records of the General Faculty Committee (GFC) includes materials generated or received by the committee between 1939-1977. The records are divided into three categories, General Administrative Records, Administrative Subject Files, and records pertaining to GFC Committees. The original folder titles have been retained. Materials relating to other faculty committees and the University Senate which was not directly related to the GFC, was removed and filed with other appropriate series.

The General Administrative Records include a comprehensive account of the origins of the GFC and two five-year progress reports covering the first ten years of the committee's existence. The GFC Annual Reports and the GFC Report provide a comprehensive account of the committee's activities on a yearly basis. Included in the reports are preliminary drafts of reports, subcommittee reports and reports of other faculty committees. The Agenda and Meeting Notices and Minutes are not complete for every year and are missing entirely for the years 1939-1958.

Although the bulk of the remainder of the records date from the late 1960's and 1970's, a few miscellaneous items from the 1940's are included. Most of the Correspondence is of a rather general nature. Correspondence pertaining to a specific subject may often be found in the appropriate subject folders. The Membership materials pertain to the GFC, except the folders entitled "Committee Appointments" which pertain to other faculty committees as well as GFC committees.

The Administrative Subject Files and the Committees materials are closely related since GFC subcommittees often generate materials relating to these specific subjects. Included is correspondence, reports and drafts memoranda, notes and lists.
