Records include correspondence, applications, memoranda, papers
presented, reports and general material relating to the institutes held in the summers
of 1965 and 1966 and one workshop held in October 1967.
The National Defense Education Act (Public Law 85-864) of 1958, amended in November
1964, provided for guidance and counseling institutes to be held at various institutions
across the country, with the purpose of training counselors at all academic levels to
work more effectively with disadvantaged and minority students who are facing vocational
decisions. Stanford was chosen as a host institution. Dr. John D. Black, Director of the
Stanford University Counseling and Testing Center, directed the two institutes and one
workshop held on the Stanford campus in 1965, 1966, and October 1967.
