Description
The Fred Harcleroad Papers are a collection of documents created and received by Harcleroad slightly prior to, during, and after his time as President of the University.
Background
Fred Harcleroad became President of the University in 1959, before the Hayward Campus was created. He was appointed after having served as a dean at the San Jose State College and was quickly embraced by the student body and faculty as a supporter of education and the Alameda County College (as it was then known). Fred Harcleroad also assisted in the lengthy naming process of the college, the construction of its campus, the selection of its faculty, and the structure of its curriculum. Dr. Harcleroad's interest in A.V. pertaining to teaching made him a forward-thinking man who strove to integrate technology into the college system.
