Container List

Series I: Alphabetical, 1961-1969 (Boxes 1-20)

Scope and Contents note

The alphabetical series consists of 100 linear inches of materials arranged alphabetically by correspondent. The files were arranged by Hester's office previous to the installation of the subject files and numbering system that began in 1969. Consequently this series represents every aspect of Hester's job as President of the University. There is correspondence with professors, students, the community, and prominent individuals.

Files are arranged alphabetically by title, department, or individual name. General correspondence files include documents such as correspondence with the public and invitations to off-campus social events as well as communications with several individual correspondents. The broad folder titles may make it more difficult to locate desired subjects.
