Central Files, 1890-1984

Series I: Central Files, 1895-1971

Central Files documents a wide range of people, topics and functions. The strengths of Series I include documentation of the administration and governance of the University; Columbia's academic affairs and the administration of the academic divisions of the University; research programs and institutes; affiliated institutions and relations with other institutions; the development of disciplines and professions; the University's relations with the surrounding community; development programs; gifts to the University, donor relations, and alumni affairs; student affairs and services; campus planning and architecture; awards and honorary degrees; and events and ceremonies.

Central Files reflects Columbia's development into a university; the formation and implementation of administrative policies and procedures; the structure of the University administration; the activities and role of the University's governing bodies; and the daily operations of the University.

Central Files is a critical resource for documentation Columbia's development as a university. The earliest records in the files date from the administration of Presidents Low and Butler, who were instrumental in Columbia's transformation from a college into a university. Materials in the files chronicle the move to Morningside Heights, the establishment of schools and departments, the introduction of new administrative offices, and the increasing size and gradual professionalization of the administration.

As the University grew, so did the number of administrative tasks and issues to be faced. Central Files provides information on the formation and implementation of new policies and procedures as well as the introduction of new administrative posts and offices. For example, during the Butler and Low administrators, the president and secretary often corresponded regarding administrative issues and how to carry out administrative tasks. It is sometimes possible to follow the development of a particular procedure or policy from early discussions in the correspondence to the implementation of the new policy or procedure. Records in the files also relate to the formation of new administrative offices, many of which reflected the increasingly businesslike structure of the University administration. For example, the creation of the posts of vice president for business and comptroller as well as the evolution of new registration procedures are recorded in the files. The records also reflect the shift from assigning committees of faculty, alumni, and administrators to undertake tasks to the introduction of a new administrative post or office to oversee that task.

Central Files is an important resource for understanding the structure of the University administration and the administrative reorganizations that took place throughout the twentieth century, such as the major restructuring that occurred in 1949 when the entire administration was studied and business operations, in particular, were significantly revised. In addition to administrative reorganizations, Columbia conducted a number of self-studies and long-range planning projects during the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s. Some of the studies were University-wide, while others were aimed at a particular school or group of schools. A number of these projects are well documented in Central Files. Correspondence, reports, and working papers provide information on the motivation for the study, its mission and scope, the activities of the committee that was appointed to conduct the study, and the findings and recommendations of the study. Such records help to captures the University at a particular moment in time and provide information on a range of issues, such as space needs, finances, the mission and goals of the University, the curriculum, and the organizational structure of the University.

Records in Central Files also contribute to the understanding of University governance. In particular, substantial correspondence in the files relates to the board of trustees. Over 100 of the sub-series in Series I contain materials regarding the board or correspondence from trustees. For the most part, materials in the files reflect the routine business of the board, such as arrangements for meetings, social engagements, and membership on the board. In some cases, Central Files also contains reports regarding the board and substantive correspondence about the powers of the trustees. Correspondence between trustees and the president also illustrates the involvement of the trustees in the life of the University in all its variety. In their letters, trustees, presidents, and administrators discussed topics such as academic freedom, University finances, donor relations, the appointment of deans and administrators, and the mission and role of he University. The routine business and, in some cases, activities of the standing committees of the trustees are also recorded. Trustees' committees that are reflected in the files include the committees on honors, education, buildings and grounds, and alumni affairs.

Many of the records in Central Files relate to the daily operations of the University. The files record a host of routine tasks, including the management of administrative offices, in particular in terms of officer personnel, facilities and finances; the preparation of reports, bulletins, and other publications; and the scheduling of appointments and meetings, as well as administrative issues, such as University-wide employee benefits and labor relations. More importantly, Central Files documents admissions issues, registration and related tasks, finances, and facilities management through the University.

A number of sub-series files in Central Files Series I concern issues related to admissions. Materials in the files chronicle a number of periods in which admissions criteria and procedures were reviewed and changed. In particular, the records relate to the College Entrance Examination Board and the University Committee on Entrance Examinations from the 1890s to the 1920s. These materials reflect the formation of standardized entrance examinations and include discussions of admissions criteria, the content of examinations, and examination policies and procedures. In addition, correspondence documents the reevaluation of admission criteria and procedures during the late 1940s, and correspondence and announcements reflect issues surrounding admissions and recruiting efforts during the late 1960s.

Columbia's growing student body and the introduction of new schools presented complications for the antiquated registration system. Beginning in the 1890s, the University sought to improve the registration process and related tasks. Records regarding registration date from 1898 to 1971. In particular, Central Files records the formation of new registration procedures and the daily administration of registration and related tasks from 1898 to 1920. In some instances, the files also include enrollment statistics and the evaluation of enrollment trends.

Central Files chronicles the University's sometimes troubled finances and documents the financial administration of the institution. Between the 1890s and the 1930s, Columbia continuously struggled to service the debt accrued by the purchase of a new campus and the initial phase of expansion. In addition, throughout the twentieth century, the University's budget and expenditures increased drastically, new endowments were created, and investments were acquired in many forms. Columbia also underwent several financial crises, including those that occurred in 1917-18 and the 1930s. Central Files contributes to the understanding of these trends. Specific topics related to University finances range from routine appropriations and expenditures, accounting and reporting, and the management of special funds to University-wide budgetary policy and the preparation of the annual budget, investment policies and planning, financial planning and analysis and the financial needs of the University.

The management of Columbia's facilities is a common topic in Central Files. The records document construction and renovation projects, maintenance, and repairs. The continuous pressure of increased enrollment, growing numbers of faculty and staff, and new offices and departments made space needs a frequent topic of concern. Materials in the files document efforts to allocate space to competing offices and departments and attempts to carve more space out of existing buildings. Central Files also includes a number of studies that evaluate the use of individual buildings. For example, Low Memorial Library received the attention of at least two studies that assessed the condition of the building and use of space in it.

The University's academic functions altered dramatically during the first half of the twentieth century. Schools, departments, and programs expanded or were created; new professorships were established; new subjects were added to the curriculum; numerous institutes were formed; library facilities, collections, and staff increased; and new degrees were introduced. The University also confronted issues involving its growing graduate and professional programs along with related questions surrounding the role of Columbia College and undergraduate educations in the University. Central Files contains correspondence, reports, proposals, minutes, and bulletins documenting numerous topics related to the academic affairs of the University. The records also reflect influences on Columbia's educational mission and academic policies.

Schools: Central Files chronicles the history of a number of Columbia's schools and faculties, including undergraduate colleges, graduate, and professional schools; the continuing education division and home study program; and the summer session. Over 200 sub-series folders related to schools, and nearly 40 to Columbia College alone.

The files document the establishment of several schools. For example, records describing the establishment of the School of International Affairs and a number of its institutes and programs date from 1931 through the 1940s. Issues relating to the formation of schools include funding and planning, mission, curriculum, and facilities. Often, by reviewing the files of specific deans and administrators, it is possible to trace the history of a school over the course of decades, from its founding through its successive mergers, divisions, and administrative changes. To illustrate, the files contain extensive records on the School of Engineering and Applied Science and its predecessors (the School of Mines; Schools of Mines, Engineering and Chemistry; and the School of Engineering) dating from 1891 to the 1950s and, less comprehensively, from the 1950s to 1971. The development of graduate schools, including the School of Political Science; the Faculties of Political Science, Philosophy and Pure Science; the Graduate Faculties; and the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, is chronicled from 1890 to 1939, 1949 to 1958, and the mid 1960s to 1971.

Central Files also reflects the daily administration of the schools. Numerous files contain information on faculty recruiting and appointments, gifts, budgeting, the administration of departments and divisions within the school, relations with the University's administration (often in terms of finances and facilities), school administrative and advisory boards, facilities, prizes and awards, and finances. Materials relating to the academic affairs of individual schools, including degree requirements, the creation of new degrees, the mission of the school, the administration of doctoral examinations, and the curriculum of the school are also prevalent in Central Files. In addition, the files detail major building programs, special projects, long-range planning efforts, and funding campaigns.

Academic Departments and Programs: Central files contain over 300 named folders related to the development and operation of numerous academic development and operation of numerous academic departments and programs. A number of these are documented over the course of decades. For example, the files provide a nearly complete record of the Department of Chemistry from 1890 to 1959, as well as a less comprehensive body of materials on the same department dating from 1960 to 1971. Records also chronicle the history of Asian studies at Columbia - including the Department of Chinese and Japanese, the Department of Chinese Languages and Literatures, the Committee on Oriental Studies, and the East Asian Institute - from 1891 to 1969. Records relating to the Department of Physics date from the 1890s to the 1950s.

Correspondence, budgets, reports, and other records reflect a wide variety of subjects involving departments. Topics treated range from the routine to the substantive. Most often, the records relate to budgeting; faculty recruiting and appointments; arrangements for courses; prizes and awards; appropriations and expenditures; the management of special funds for research, prizes, and scholarships; departmental office facilities; faculty affairs, such as sabbaticals and travel arrangements; gifts to the department; and visiting professors and lecturers. Folders relating to the science departments also include information on research facilities, equipments, fieldwork, laboratories, and the administration of sponsored projects.

In addition to the administrative issues listed above, department-related records illuminate more substantive topics regarding the curriculum, mission, faculty, and structure of the department. These subjects include staffing needs in terms of the number of faculty members required and fields for which the department hoped to hire a new faculty member; proposed special programs and new courses; course requirements; teaching loads; the establishment of named professorships; the curriculum of the department; the evaluation of faculty performance; and relations with other departments. On occasion, a department was evaluated by an outside committee comprised of faculty and administrators. The reports of these committees discuss issues ranging from the organization of the department to faculty performance to the curriculum. In some cases, records in Central Files also provide information on the establishment of a department. The influence of particular donors, developments in the curriculum and the structure of the new department are among the topics that relate to this issue.

Faculty: Records relating to schools, departments, and programs often include information on Columbia's faculty - both as individuals and in general terms. Most of the information regarding faculty is administrative in nature. For example, correspondence and budget letters related to faculty salaries, teaching loads, and courses and sometimes evaluate the work of faculty members. Materials in Central Files also record faculty personnel issues, such as appointments, recruiting efforts, appointments to fellowships, salaries, leaves, and benefits. In addition, correspondence, publications, and speeches help to document individual faculty members' committee responsibilities, professional activities, and attendance at conferences and official functions. In some cases, information regarding the administration of a faculty member's research projects, fieldwork, and writing projects is also available. Most of this material is routine in nature. Central Files does not include faculty members' research notes or lecture notes. Records also relate to faculty personnel policies and benefits on a University-wide basis. In particular, Central Files includes information regarding the formation and management of pension plans for University faculty.

Central Files also documents the related topics of academic freedom and relations between the faculty and the University administration. In particular, the records reflect these issues during times of crisis, such as World War I, when several professors were dismissed from the University; the late 1940s and early 1950s, when a number of faculty members faced charges of communist activities; and the 1960s, when faculty-administration relations were strained by social and educational issues as well as conflicts over student unrest.

Libraries: Columbia's library system changed dramatically during the first half of the twentieth century. New libraries were formed to serve the needs of specialized fields; library facilities, services, and collections were expanded; and the library staff grew from a single University librarian to a large staff of professionals. Central Files helps to chronicle this transformation and includes correspondence, reports, floor plans, newsletters, and financial statements relating to the Columbia University Libraries. Most of these materials date from the 1920s to the 1950s. The records documents facilities, personnel administration, library fees, finances and costs, collection management, gifts, the appraisal and acquisition of new collections, and policies of the University libraries as well as certain departmental and special libraries. Central Files also records the formation of the Rare Book and Manuscript Library and area studies libraries.

Columbia's Academic Mission and Philosophy: Central Files is an important resource for identifying and understanding influences on the academic mission and philosophy of the University - from individual donors to social and political trends. In particular, records prior to the 1940s demonstrate ties with German academia through the Roosevelt Professorship, Germanistic Society of America, the Kaiser Wilhelm Professorship, and Columbia's Deutsches Haus. Later records show the effects of World War II, which had a profound influence on the schools and departments in the sciences and engineering as well as the financial underpinning of research at the University; the postwar era, when concerns over competition with communist governments raised issues regarding progress in science and engineering; and the 1960s and 1970s, when minority group and student pressure brought upheaval and change to the campus.

Topics related to research include the formation of government, corporate, and foundation-sponsored research programs; the administration of research projects and research facilities; and the formation and operation of research institutes. While countless individual projects are documented, Central Files is particularly strong in the areas of physics, engineering, social sciences, and earth sciences research as well as the development of University-wide research programs and facilities.

Central Files chronicles the institution of an organized research program at Columbia from government-sponsored projects hastily set up in response to wartime needs to the eventual founding of the University's Office of Projects and Grants. In particular, the records focus on government-sponsored research and the growth of ties between the government and the University during the 1940s and 1950s. For the most part, the records relate to facilities, security, financial administration, and personnel issues involving government contracts. Occasionally, the records also discuss policies guiding sponsored research and demonstrate the ways in which Columbia determined its relationship with the government, especially in terms of cost overhead. The files also include records relating to training programs that were run by the University for the government and military during World War II.

Materials in Central Files also relate to the creation of research facilities at Columbia and the administration of research facilities and projects in departments, schools, and institutes. Most of the records documenting departmental research pertain to such routine subjects as payments to research assistants and laboratory equipment. Many departmental files, however, also contain research proposals that were submitted to foundations or reports summarizing research efforts in the department. Records in the files also document research-related issues and facilities on a University-wide basis. For example, records describe the founding and administration of the University's Nevis research facilities during the 1940s and 1950s.

Records in Central Files chronicle developments in the fields of science and engineering research. In particular, the records relate to research in physics from 1935 to 1969 and research projects involving a variety of fields that took place in the engineering school and engineering departments from the 1890s through the 1950s. Social science research institutes are also well documented in the files. Related topics range from the establishment, mission, and funding of institutes to administrative issues, such as facilities and personnel. The records also include reports and funding proposals that describe the activities and accomplishments of research institutes. For example, files chronicle the organization, policies, and research goals of the Bureau of Applied Social Research, which began as the University's Office of Radio Research, from 1934 to 1960. Records dating from 1949 to 1960 chronicle the National Manpower Council and the Conservation of Human Resources Project, which were based at Columbia.

Research in the earth sciences is also recorded in Central Files, first through records regarding the School of Mines and the Geology Department and, eventually, through materials relating to the formation and administration of the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, which is documented from the 1940s to 1971. Related records chronicle relations between the observatory and the Lamont family, who donated the estate that houses it, as well as negotiations with the Doherty Foundation, which provided major funding for its further development. Other topics include Lamont-Doherty's funding, facilities, and faculty and the administration of research projects, such as the ocean core sample project. Occasionally, letters or reports provide accounts of expeditions. In addition, the records often pertain to the needs of the observatory and its relations with donors and the University.

In addition to Columbia's schools, departments, and institutes, Central Files documents numerous other educational, research, social, and cultural institutions that are or were affiliated with Columbia. The files are an especially useful source of information on affiliations with New York area hospitals. Materials in the files relate to the formation of affiliation agreements; gifts to affiliates; and relations between affiliated institutions and Columbia, in particular in terms of finances, legal issues, faculty, and facilities. In some cases, it is possible to trace the history of an affiliation in order to see the development of a relationship with an institution and changes in that relationship over time. For example, Central Files chronicles the affiliation between Columbia University and Presbyterian Hospital, which began ca. 1910 and resulted in the creation of the Columbia-Presbyterian Medical Center in 1928.

Through records relation to schools, departments, programs, research, and affiliated institutions, Central Files also chronicles the growth of certain disciplines and professions, such as engineering, physics, chemistry, the social sciences, international affairs, and journalism. Correspondence and other records provide information on developments in the curriculum, funding efforts, and gifts supporting research and education in a particular area, prominent faculty in the field, the advent of professional training in certain fields, and the establishment of new programs and schools, as well as changes to existing ones in order to serve the needs of developing professions and disciplines.

Since its move to Morningside Heights, Columbia has had an impact on the surrounding community. Community issues and problems have also had a growing influence on the University. Columbia's public relations and community relations are documented in a variety of sources in Central Files. Most prominently, Central Files is a useful source of information on Columbia's troubled community relations during the 1960s. The records relate to Columbia's efforts to improve public relations and address community issues; landlord-tenant conflicts between the University and the community; Columbia's plan to erect a gymnasium in nearby Morningside Park; urban renewal programs; and community services such as medical clinics and sports programs.

Central Files contains extensive records regarding Columbia's development efforts, donor relations, alumni relations, benefactors, and gifts. In particular, the files are an important resource for information on the establishment, terms, and use of specific gifts and endowments. They also record such gifts as money, stocks, property, art and artifacts, library and manuscript collections, and equipment. Central Files also reflects the influence of donors on the University in terms of its finances, physical development, academic programs, and curriculum. Some files span many years, chronicling a donor's or potential donor's relationship with Columbia over time. Others record only a single gift or a short period of time.

The files also relate to the development campaigns for the University in general as well as for its schools. A number of major funding campaigns, both those that were realized and those that were not successful, are well documented in Central Files. For example, files include information on the successful campaign for an engineering center and failed attempts to fund an arts center. Funding proposals are often a detailed source of information regarding the space needs, costs, mission, and activities of a proposed project and reflect the goals and priorities of the University at a particular point in time.

Central Files also records the creation of a professional, organized development program at the University, which began in 1945 with the hiring of a development officer to plan a ten-year funding program. The records document the formation of development strategies and priorities, the work of development committees, and the operation of the Development Office.

Closely connected to development is alumni relations. While Central Files is not a comprehensive source of information on alumni groups and relations, it offers evidence of the interaction between certain alumni groups, in particular the Alumni Federation of Columbia University, and the University administration. Most of the records pertain to routine preparations for alumni events and the administration of local and regional alumni clubs. Alumni involvement is the life of the University – whether through funding, the oversight of student activities, or interaction with the administration – is also reflected in Central Files. In addition to materials relating to the Alumni Federation and other alumni groups, most of which date from 1914 through the mid 1960s, Central Files also contains numerous letters from individual alumni who wrote to the president and administrators on topics ranging from football to academic freedom.

The management of student affairs at Columbia has reflected the changing nature of student activities and student relations with the administration, a persistent concern for how student organizations reflect upon the University, and attempts to deal with conflicts between students and the administration. Between 1900 and the 1940s in particular, Columbia sought ways to centralize the administration of nonacademic services and to make those aspects of students' lives more conducive to a community spirit and more supportive of the academic function of the University. Central Files includes records from deans, deans of students, and the administrators and alumni who oversaw student groups, housing, discipline, athletics, health services, and other aspects of the students' lives outside the classroom.

Although students are documents in Central Files, they usually appear as the were seen through administrators' eyes – as recipients of financial aid, scholarships, and awards; users of student services; disciplinary problems; or in terms of demographics and statistics. For example, records relate to the management of residence halls and the formation of student health services. Materials in the files also pertain to provisions for students' social, religious, and civic lives through the Earl Hall religious center, the Ferris Booth Hall student center (replaced by Lerner Hall), and other programs. Periodically, policies governing students and student groups are also discussed in the records. For example, records from the 1950s relate to the introduction of policies governing speakers sponsored by student groups following a controversy regarding a student-sponsored speaker.

Central Files also helps to document issues surrounding female students at Columbia. A small body of records, including correspondence from the deans of Barnard College and the adviser to women graduate students, relates to housing, the admission of women to University courses, services for female students, and the status of women students on the campus. In addition, the files includes information regarding services for international students from the 1940s to 1971, as well as veterans' affairs and services during the 1940s and 1950s.

One important issue that is reflected in Central Files is the relationship between students and the University, in particular during the campus disturbances of the 1960s. Correspondence between deans, administrators, and trustees as well as proctors' reports and official University announcements illustrate this relationship. The proctors' reports are of particular interest in illuminating student activities. They list and very briefly discuss student meetings, events, demonstrations, disciplinary problems and pranks, security violations, rules infractions, and rumors regarding protests. In some cases fliers that were distributed at demonstrations as well as student petitions are also found in the records. Among other topics, the files reflect the administration's efforts to control and discipline students, responses to student demonstrations, attempts to respond to students' demands for reform of University government, and struggles with public relations issues.

The original concept for much of Columbia's Morningside Heights campus was determined by the architectural firm of McKim, Mead & White. Materials in Central Files document the initial plan for the development of the new campus, the design of buildings, plans for further development of the site, space needs, and diversions from the original campus plan. The records also relate to major building projects - both those that were proposed but never undertaken and those that were completed. For example, projects recorded in the files include the design and construction of Low Memorial Library, a plan by I.M. Pei to construct towers in the center of campus, and efforts to erect a gymnasium in Morningside Park. Other buildings and facilities that are well documented in the files include Butler Library, Ken Hall, University Hall (now the site of Uris Hall), Engineering Terrace, the Baker Field athletic facility, and the South Field portion of the campus.

Records relating to campus design and planning demonstrate trends in Columbia's architecture, influences on the physical growth and style of the campus, and concepts of the purpose of new buildings. In documenting Columbia's design and expansion, Central Files contributes to the understanding of the University's impact on the surrounding community and the development of the Morningside Heights neighborhood.

Countless prizes and awards - including those that were granted by individual departments or schools, the University, or nationally - are documented in Central Files. Topics relating to prizes and awards include their establishment, the selection of prize and award recipients, the management of prize funds, and the funding and purpose of prizes and awards. In particular, the records contain information on the Pulitzer Prizes dating from 1893 to 1971. Honorary degrees are also recorded in the files. Related topics include preparations for honorary degree convocations and the nomination and selection of degree recipients. The records also contain citations and speeches that were delivered at degree ceremonies.

Official University ceremonies and certain special events are often documented in Central Files. Records relating to events include minutes, correspondence, proposals, fliers, programs, newsletters, lists, invitations, texts of citations and speeches, press releases, and floor plans. Many of the issues related to events and ceremonies are routine in nature. For example, Central Files documents seating plans, travel arrangements, menus, crowd control, publicity, and acceptances and regrets. Certain named files also contain more substantive information on the purpose of events. In particular, records from the 1950s chronicle Columbia's yearlong bicentennial celebration, which took place in 1954. Many of the folders in Central Files dating from this period contain at least a small amount of correspondence regarding the 200th anniversary celebrations, and several named files contain extensive correspondence, minutes, newsletters, and other related materials. Beginning in the mid 1940s and continuing through the 1950s, committees of administrators, faculty, and trustees began planning for the bicentennial. Related topics include the selection of themes for the celebration, planning and preparations for events, publicity, and anniversary-related development campaigns.

Central Files also includes numerous records - such as correspondence, proceedings, and programs, regarding many lecture series, seminars, and conferences that were held at Columbia. Some lectures and seminars, such as the Bampton Lectures in America of the University Seminars, were University wide. Others were hosted by a particular department or school. For the most part, these records relate to the appointment of lecturers or seminar and conference participants, travel arrangements, honoraria, and the management of special funds in support of lectureships and seminars. Certain named folders also contain information on the purpose of lecture series, conference and seminars, as well as information regarding the establishment of lecture series and the agenda and proceedings of conferences.

Central Files documents a critical time in the history of one of the nation's leading academic institutions. During the twentieth century, Columbia has not only undergone significant changes to its curriculum, facilities, administration, and student body but has also played an important role beyond its gates. By documenting the transformation of Columbia from a college to a university and recording the history of its many schools and departments, the formation of research programs at the University, Columbia's relations with other educational and cultural institutions, new directions in numerous academic disciplines and professions, and a host of other topics, Central Files takes its place as a major resource for researching the evolution of higher education in the United States.

Subseries I.1: General Alphabetical, 1890-1971

The first 318 cubic feet of correspondence and other records dating from 1890 to 1971 were filed under general alphabetical headings. Each letter of the alphabet is divided into chronological groups. For example, files labeled A-Az for 1930-1931 are followed by the A-Az files for 1931-1932 and so on. This sub-series contains the same types of materials relating to the same categories of subject as the rest of Central Files. It appears as though records were filed under general alphabetical headings when only a small amount of correspondence was received or when the subject of the correspondence was not considered to be important at the time. In spite of this, sub-series I.1 contains many substantial records as well as materials from significant persons and should not be overlooked by researchers.

If a desired personal name, corporate name, or subject does not appear in the following sub-series, or if the name or subject is found but the time period of interest falls outside the date range given for the folder, it may still be possible to find relevant materials in this series, through the use of the Central Files card index, or by confining the search to a very specific date range.
