Psychology Department Financial Records

 Collection
Identifier: 11/3/23/4

  • Staff Only
This series consists of correspondence, memoranda, reports, and forms related to the budget of the Department of Psychology. It is arranged in four categories: general budget and payroll files (1947-51, 1965-77); monthly budget statements (1973-78); budget-related correspondence with the Deans of the College of Arts and Sciences (1959-70); and materials relating to grants (1963-74). Records are arranged chronologically within each category.

The general budget files include listings of appropriations to various Department accounts; Department payrolls and forms adding persons to, and deleting them from, the payroll; and copies of annual letters to faculty members notifying them of their salaries for the following academic year. The correspondence with the Deans includes annual “budget letters” written by Department chairpersons, devoted largely to justifying proposed salary increases. These letters thus provide a brief overview of each faculty member's accomplishments during the year preceding. The grant-related materials include copies of grant applications, reports to granting agencies, and related correspondence.
