Series II: Administrative Records, 1895-1936

This series contains the Office of the Dean's correspondence files. These files include information on faculty and student matters, department budgets and annual reports, enrollments, Camp Columbia, alumni gifts, trustee decisions, etc. The first alphabetical run is supposed to be from 1900 to 1910 but includes later materials. School of Engineering Deans during this period: Frederick R. Hutton, 1899-1905; George F. Sever (Acting), 1905-1907; Frederick A. Goetze, 1907-1917; George B. Pegram, 1917-1930 and Joseph Warren Barker, 1930-1946. This series also includes materials related to the School's self-study and/or reviews undertaken as part of the re-accreditation proces, which were submitted to the Education and Accreditation Commission of the Engineers' Council for Professional Development, later known as the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology.

External users and Columbia affiliates may view materials on-site at RBML. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, only Columbia affiliates may view materials on-site at Avery, Starr, and Burke. After clicking 'Submit Request', users will login with their UNI and password (Columbia affiliates) or their special collections account (external users).
