    Administrative Information

    Acquisition Information

    These volumes were transferred from the Office of the President in November 1969.

    Scope and Content

    These volumes present budget requests made by department chairs and unit heads annually (occasionally biannually) with their narrative justification for the requests, especially for increases in both academic and non-academic positions and for other expenses such as supplies. They usually contain the number of personnel in each category, sometimes listing each person by name. Some years contain enrollment figures for various courses in teaching departments, although this is not consistent. The list of volumes gives the titles as they appear on the volumes into which the sheets were bound; the order of the sections is somewhat arbitrary, but the sheets usually start with higher level administration, then academic departments, followed by institutes, bureaus and libraries.
