Language of Materials
The Communications Residential College (CRC) is one of eleven Residential Colleges on the Northwestern University campus. The records of the Master of the CRC were accumulated during Roger Boye’s tenure as Master of the Communications Residential College. The bulk of the records date between 1988 and 1995 and consist of administrative files, including meeting notes and agendas from the Council of Masters of the Residential Colleges, CRC resident lists, activity reports and CRC tutorial applications and planning information.
Folders are arranged alphabetically by topic, and materials within folders are arranged chronologically by date. Undated records were included at the end of the dated records in each folder. When the records for an academic year filled two folders, the undated material was placed at the end of the dated material for that year.
Method of Acquisition
These records were transferred to the University Archives by Roger Boye on August 6, 1996, as Accession No. 96-121.
Two inches of duplicate materials were discarded. Residential College handbooks were added to the University Archives' general files; an officer's handbook was added to the Archives' serials files.
