Graduate Board records
Although the records covering the first 16 years of Graduate Board activity are missing, the years from 1985 to 1988 are thoroughly covered with varying amounts of information from 1978-1984 and 1989-1992. Thus, they do provide a good overview of the Graduate Board's areas of activity and responsibility, namely the processing of all advanced degree candidates and control over the right of new departments to offer advanced degrees. The materials generally consist of student records, meeting records and reports, and the occasional administrative file. Subjects of considerable discussion include, among others, language requirements, oral examination regulations, and manuscript quality. The record group is subdivided as follows:
Series 1: Degree Documentation, 1984-1992
Series 2: Graduate Board Minutes, 1978-1988
Series 3: Student and Administrative Records, 1963-1992
Series 1 and 2 are arranged chronologically, while series 3 is arranged alphabetically. Most of the documents in this record group exist in bound form, having been removed from their original files and bound by the office of origin.
