Table of contents What's This?
The Records of the Office of the Chancellor, University of California, Berkeley, 1952-[ongoing], includes records for the chancellorships of Clark Kerr, Glenn T. Seaborg, Edward W. Strong, Martin Meyerson, Roger Heyns, and Albert H. Bowker. The collection includes the administrative records of the Office, including records generated by vice-chancellors and immediate office staff.
The Berkeley Chancellorship was established in 1952. The President of the University was the chief administrative officer at Berkeley until July 1952. Between July 1945 and 1947 delegation of 'full authority, under the president, to administer the [academic] departments on the campus' was granted to a provost-at that time Monroe E. Deutsch. Following the retirement of Deutsch in 1947, the President again assumed direct administrative control of the campus until July 1952, when the first chancellor was appointed and directed to assume operating jurisdiction over the colleges, schools and other organizational units on the Berkeley campus in accordance with the policies of the Regents and of the President of the University.
