Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Administrative files created by John S. Galbraith, the second chancellor (1964-1968) of UCSD. The collection includes correspondence relating to matters of personal concern to Galbraith, including his relations with members of the campus and San Diego communities, relations with his professional colleagues, the "Flag Incident" of 1967, and issues such as campus drug use and Galbraith's two resignations. Included are correspondence between Galbraith and U.C. President Clark Kerr and materials documenting their conflict over funding for the UCSD Library. The collection is arranged in three series: 1) PERSONAL CORRESPONDENCE, 2) SUBJECT FILES, and 3) SCRAPBOOKS.
John S. Galbraith succeeded Herbert F. York as chancellor of the University of California, San Diego, in 1964. He quickly became a popular and respected administrator and continued the UCSD tradition of finding outstanding people to fill academic and administrative posts. Galbraith involved himself in a wide array of San Diego community affairs and thereby helped promote better relations between the University and the San Diego's political and social leaders.
