Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The University Advancement collection contains records used in the promotion of CSU East Bay among students, faculty, staff, and administrators, as well as alumni, members of the local community, and other persons affiliated with the University. The collection contains publications, photographs, and assorted papers used for promotional purposes.
The Office of University Advancement has undergone many name changes throughout the years. Its exact origins are difficult to trace, but it was likely started in 1960 as part of John Gothbert’s responsibilities as Coordinator of Publications. In 1963, the department became a distinctly separate entity named College-Community Relations. It subsequently acquired the title of Public Affairs & College Relations. In 1970, after a brief period without an acting director, Durrell M. Gray took over as head of what was then called Information Services, before the name of the department was changed back to Public Affairs in 1971.
