Inventory to the Records of the Albert Schweitzer Chair in the Humanities
||Cantor, Norman F.
||Records of the Albert Schweitzer Chair in the Humanities
||In 1965 the New York State Board of Regents awarded New York State University the
funds to create an Albert Schweitzer Chair in the Humanities as part of a state-wide
attempt to improve higher learning. Several chairs, five of which were designated
by the State Legislature as the Albert Schweitzer Chair and five as the Albert Einstein
Chair in Science, were intended to attract the world's most renowned scholars to New
York State's higher educational community. The inventory to the Records of the Albert
Schweitzer Chair in the Humanities chronicles the records of this position from 1965-1984.
The recipients of the additional chairs were City University of New York, Cornell
University, the University of Rochester, State University of New York at Stony Brook
and Fordham University; however, information about chairs at other institutions are
not recorded in this collection.
