Abstract

This series is comprised of the General Files maintained by Joe W. Miller, Dean of Special Events, which span the period from 1943 to 1976, although the bulk of the records emanated from the latter part of 1960's and early 1970's. The records are arranged according to three broad categories: General Subject Files, Schools, Departments and Buildings and Student Activities and Organizations.

Arrangement Note

The first two categories are arranged alphabetically by subject and chronologically within each folder. The last category, Student Activities and Organizations, is subdivided into a general subject section, also arranged alphabetically and chronological within folders and a section on Special Events and Attractions, which includes a subject file and an individual events section arranged chronologically by event.

Method of Acquisition

These records were transferred to the University Archives on August 3, 1976 by Thomas Roland, Director of Special Events and Associate Professor of Theater.
