Historical Note

The Office of the President is the top administrative office and is responsible for the efficient management of the entire University. The President must carefully attend to the following major considerations: effective administration, including the development, implementation, and monitoring of university activities; the cultivation of outreach programs; and the promotion of university activities to prospective donors and the general public.

On December 16, 1955, the New York State Board of Regents amended the University Charter, forcing a number of terminology changes. The title of the chief executive of the University changed from Chancellor to President on July 1, 1956. The Board of Trustees adopted a measure providing for a Chancellor and Executive Vice-President who would serve as a general advisor to the President and perform duties in the President's absence. The Director for the University Budget and Assistant Director of the Budget for research service would assist the Executive Vice-President.

Dr. Hester came from Long Island University to NYU in 1960. For the next two years he served as the dean of the Graduate School of Arts and Science and Executive Dean of Arts and Sciences. In 1962 he became president. Hester's term encompassed a number of important events in the history of the University. Chief among these were the student activities of the 1960s and the growth and transformation of the University into a prestigious urban educational institution.

NYU experienced severe financial difficulties during the 1960s caused in part by diminishing enrollment and subsequent loss of tuition money. Several strategies were proposed to solve the problem, including a plan to sell the Heights Campus in the Bronx. The closing of the Heights campus in 1973 caused some controversy. Opinions and comments of the faculty, staff, students, alumni, and the community at large are well-represented in correspondence found in Hester's papers.

Quelling student dissatisfaction during this time presented an enormous task. Numerous student groups demanded changes within the University. They conducted civil rights and anti-war protests as well as protests calling for administrative changes. In 1966 students responded to proposed tuition, fees, and dormitory rate increases with staged marches, boycotts, and sit-ins. As a result, the University allowed the inclusion of student representatives on committees and boards that dealt with fees, curriculum, and discipline. The administration's response to the concerns of the students is well-documented in the collection and serves as a source of information for student affairs of the period.

Through consolidation of its operations, changing its admission policies, and increasing its involvement in urban affairs, NYU transformed its institutional character. Following the sale of the Heights campus, NYU focused on developing its presence around Washington Square. The construction of Bobst Library allowed NYU to consolidate library and research collections formerly scattered over 36 locations. A more selective admission policy encouraged more full time students to attend and spurred the university to purchase residential facilities. Much information within the collection reflects this transformation, which began in the 1950s and continued through Hester's administration.

Dr. Hester resigned from the presidency in 1975 to become president of the United Nations University. During Hester's 13-year tenure, NYU experienced revolutionary developments that changed forever the goals, statements, actions, and perception of New York University.

Scope and Content Note

The collection of papers created under Dr. James M. Hester as President of New York University encompasses a difficult and transitional period in the University's history. Composed of memoranda, correspondence, reports, publications, press releases, and newspaper clippings, these papers represent the official response of the University in many matters.

As top administrative officer of the University, Dr. Hester required information from all aspects of the University's structure to make informed decisions. Correspondence, reports, and publications concerning the various schools, divisions, departments, students groups, alumni concerns, and faculty organizations comprise a number of files in this collection.

Hester's office used two filing systems to organize its records. Records dating from 1962 to 1969 were arranged alphabetically by folder title. After 1969 the files were grouped into 12 categories: Administration, Associations, Alumni Affairs, Development, Governance, Government Relations, Finance, Facilities and Services, Personnel, Public Relations, Schools and Divisions, and Student Affairs. Because the records created before 1969 represented the same informational categories, the archives decided to incorporate the earlier files into the groupings established after 1969. Each category forms a series with the addition of another series of alphabetical files. Due to the fact that Alumni Affairs constituted only two folders, it was integrated into the Administration series. See series descriptions for more detailed explanations of the kinds of information present.

Arrangement

Series I, II, III, VI, XI, and XII are arranged alphabetically. Series IV and V are arranged according to a numbering system used by Hester's office. Series VII, VIII, IX, and X are arranged by subject. Series XIII is, with some exceptions, mainly chronologically arranged. See individual series descriptions for more details.

The collection is organized into 13 series:

  1. Alphabetical
  2. Administration
  3. Associations
  4. Development
  5. Governance
  6. Government Relations
  7. Finance
  8. Facilities and Services
  9. Personnel
  10. Public Relations
  11. Schools and Divisions
  12. Student Affairs
  13. Interviews, Speeches, and Testimony, 1962-1975

Administrative Information

Provenance

This collection of papers from the Office of the President during the administration of Dr. James McNaughton Hester came to the University Archives through four accessions made in 1978, 1979, 1980, and 1981, after initial inventories were completed by E. Frederick Knauth.

Composed of 43.5 linear feet of material contained in 87 Hollinger boxes, this collection of material spans the dates 1951-1975. The collection is in good condition. Numerous thermofaxed copies and newspaper clippings were photocopied onto acid-free paper and originals discarded.

A number of booklets, pamphlets, and large bulky reports were removed for storage separately. Some material is restricted. Numerous autographed letters were photocopied and the originals placed in the restricted access file. Also removed from this collection were a number of files concerning Board of Trustees members that were added to the Secretary's collection. Evaluations of various Deans have also been removed and stored separately for confidentiality. These two transfers took place as part of the inventories completed by Mr. Knauth.

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.

Series II: Administration, 1965-1975 (Boxes 21-24)

Scope and Contents note

The administration series consists of 20 linear inches of material organized alphabetically by subject. Within each folder the material is organized chronologically. The series relates to general administrative activities and academic matters, including office services, research, libraries, legal matters, university history, the Hall of Fame, the art collection, and program development.

Box 21 consists primarily of information regarding alumni and announcements and circulars from the President's office. In the original inventory, alumni affairs was a separate series and included all New York University alumni activities, associations, and correspondence with or regarding an individual alumnus. Because this information consisted of only two folders, it has been incorporated into the administration series.

Box 22 contains materials of considerable interest to researchers. Folders 4-7 include information about the disagreement between President Hester and Parks Commissioner Robert Moses over whether or not the Hall of Fame would be moved after NYU abandoned the Heights campus. Folder 8 contains information about the history of NYU and the Washington Square area in general, including a report on NYU's budget from 1849. Box 22, folder 9 and Box 23, folder 1 contain information about the establishment of the NYU Archives and its early history.

Box 23, folders 2-11 and Box 4, folder 1-3 contain information about NYU's legal difficulties with professors and students. Folder 11 includes information on NYU professors who protested denial of tenure.

Box 24, folder 5 contains information about the debate over NYU's purchase of a nuclear reactor and a community protest on the matter. There is also additional information about NYU's participation in the United States Bicentennial celebration. Material on this subject also exists separately in the University Archives (MC 144). The minutes regarding the bicentennial have been removed from this collection and stored with the other material.

Series III: Associations, 1961-1977 (Boxes 25-37)

Scope and Contents note

The associations series consists of 65 linear inches of materials arranged alphabetically by name of association. The correspondence, minutes, and publications in this series contains little information about the University. The information pertains to a number of professional educational organizations to which Hester and NYU belonged. It relates to the broader educational world, and only rarely gives insight into NYU. However, the series shows the attitudes of educational administrators during the mid and late 1960s and early 1970s.

Series VI: Finances, 1966-1975 (Boxes 45-50)

Scope and Contents note

The finances series measures 28 linear inches and is arranged alphabetically by subject. It consists of material related to auditing, banking, budgets, financial reporting, investments, and related financial matters.

There are 6 boxes relating to finances. Box 1 consists of general financial information. The file on banking (folder 1) contains a letter from the bank asking NYU to reduce its outstanding debt as well as correspondence about the voting of proxies over dealings with South Africa. The folders on the budget contain general information except for the folder on the five-year plan, which was formulated to put the University on a sound financial footing. This folder also contains the State approval of the plan. The original inventories contains references to folders on expenses. These expenses were not considered of importance to the collection as a whole and have been disposed of.

Of primary interest in this collection is the information on financial crises both at NYU and in higher education in general. Box 45 contains clippings regarding the financial crisis at NYU. Box 46 contains information about a Task Force established by President Hester to review NYU's financial condition and make recommendations that would alleviate the crisis. Hester also requested suggestions from the faculty and these suggestions are contained in the file entitled "Faculty Responses to Hester Memo of 1/28/71." Among other things, the University realized that many professors would have to be denied tenure and there was an attempt by the University to establish a faculty placement service. The information on these attempts and on the crisis at institutions of higher learning in general is also in Box 46.

Box 47 contains considerable correspondence regarding the recommendation that NYU save money by closing the Graduate School of Social Work. Initially the University viewed this as a necessary solution unless sufficient funds were raised to guarantee support for the school. The first folders on this controversy are a response to the recommendation to close. As it became obvious that sufficient funds would be raised, the correspondence changed to congratulations on having found a solution.

Box 47 also contains the Hurd Commission Report. Hurd was appointed chairman of a State Task Force on the Financing of Higher Education in New York State in November 1971. The file consists of his report, findings and recommendations circulated by Commissioner Nyquist, and comments by Professor Arnold Goren. Also in this file is information on NYU's investments including statements from banks and other managers of the endowment funds, and suggestions from within and outside of the University on how to improve income.

Box 48 contains information on the decision to sell the Heights campus and the response from alumni and students. Initially the University tried to seek an alternative to the sale through appeals legislators and a variety of alternative proposals. When it became obvious that the sale would take place, the material changes to agreements and contracts including a merger agreement between NYU's Engineering and Polytechnic Institute of Brooklyn. These plans were vigorously opposed by the students and alumni and there is considerable correspondence about the decision to close the Heights campus in Box 49. Box 49 also contains information and correspondence about the decision to merge the school of engineering with the Brooklyn Polytechnic Institute, a plan that was also strongly opposed by alumni and students.

Box 50 consists of University memos regarding finances. These memos provide a quick understanding in chronological form of what the administration was trying to do about the financial crisis.

Series XII: Student Affairs Series, 1962-1975 (Boxes 70-79)

Scope and Contents note

The student affairs series consists of 25 linear inches of material arranged alphabetically into 5 boxes. Within most folders, material is arranged chronologically. This material relates to all student activities including admissions, athletics, campus disorders, clubs, associations, financial aid, dormitory regulations, placement, student publications, centers, and conduct. The bulk of the material in this series relates to the hiring and firing of John F. Hatchett, the director of the Martin Luther King Center for Afro-American Studies.

The material on Hatchett begins in Box 1, folder 4 and continues until Box 5, folder 6. Briefly, the controversy began when the University attempted to reintegrate the Martin Luther King Jr. Afro-American Student Center into NYU. The Center asked the University to hire Hatchett as director of the Center. Hatchett had been dismissed as a school teacher when he took his students to a Malcolm X memorial service despite an explicit order from the school system not to do so. According to the correspondence from the President's office and memos on the subject, the University was unaware when it hired Hatchett that he had published an article accusing Jewish school teachers of being unable to teach black school children. This article was viewed as anti-Semitic by the Jewish community. When President Hester became aware of this controversy, he discussed the problem with Hatchett and determined that Hatchett was not anti-Semitic. The University defended its decision to hire Hatchett in an internal memo sent to alumni and faculty. Many of the alumni responded with threats to discontinue financial contributions to the University. Since many of the alumni were Jewish and the University was suffering a financial crisis, this threat was taken seriously. Hatchett then made a speech accusing Richard Nixon, then Vice President Hubert Humphrey, and Albert Shanker of being "racist bastards." This remark prompted the University to fire Hatchett. A controversy remained over whether Hatchett was actually fired over this comment or because he had been such an embarrassment from the beginning that the University was looking for an excuse. The letters regarding the Hatchett controversy are filed alphabetically instead of chronologically because that is the way they were received.

Box 5 contains an exchange between the alumni and the University over the decision to discontinue intercollegiate basketball and diminish encouragement of track because of financial difficulties. This box also contains a dispute over scholarship aid and placement of Puerto Rican students in the Graduate School of Social Work. Also of interest is a folder on the Students for a Democratic Society, which contains posters and bulletins circulated by the organization and the administration response.

Folder names followed by an asterisk (*) contain materials of a sensitive nature. Researchers must consult with the archivists before being granted access.
