    Administrative History

    The Chancellor acts as head of administration and has general authority over the campus and is responsible for setting up the administrative structure and insuring that the various units function properly. The Chancellor has specific delegated authority to sign employment contracts of faculty and staff and to represent the University in public forums.
    Herbert F. York was appointed first Chancellor of the University of California, San Diego, in 1961. He was followed by Chancellor John S. Galbraith (1964-1968), Chancellor William J. McGill (1968-1970), Acting Chancellor Herbert F. York (1970-1972), Chancellor William D. McElroy (1972-1980), Chancellor Richard C. Atkinson (1980-1995), Acting Chancellor Marjorie Caserio (1995-1996), Chancellor Robert C. Dynes (1996-2003), Acting Chancellor Marsha Chandler (2003-2004), Chancellor Marye Anne Fox (2004-2012), and Chancellor Pradeep Khosla (2012-present).
    In 1972 the Office of the Chancellor created a central filing system that was to collect records from various administrative offices. This central filing system became Administrative Records, and this office was later transferred from the Chancellor's Office to the office of the Vice-Chancellor for Administration.
    The files of Administrative Records originally contained materials from the offices of the Chancellor, Vice-Chancellor for Administration, Associate Vice-Chancellor for Business Management, Vice Chancellor for Financial Management, and selected files from the Vice-Chancellor for Academic Affairs. Currently, Administrative Records collects records from the office of the Chancellor, Associate Vice-Chancellor for Business Affairs, and selected records from the Vice-Chancellor for Administration and the Vice-Chancellor for Academic Affairs.

    Scope and Content of Collection

    The Office of the Chancellor's Subject Files are an accumulation of records from the Office of Administrative Records. Materials from different offices are interfiled into subject files, generally in chronological order. Subjects have been assigned numbers by Administrative Records, and the files have been arranged numerically.
    The files include incoming correspondence, copies of some outgoing correspondence, memos, notes, and other materials pertaining to a given subject. Any matter relating to the administration of the campus may be reflected in the subject files. Subjects include systemwide administration, building of the campus, development of academic programs, the activities of individual departments and institutes, fund raising, campus-community relations, student affairs, current events effecting the campus, and committees at the campus and systemwide levels.
    This series contains records vital to understanding the administrative decisions that have directed the development of UCSD and provides important information on the activities of individual departments and other units of campus operation.
