Description

Summary

This collection consists of the correspondence of the Dean and the Secretary of the Faculty of Political Science with University administrators as well as correspondents outside the university, including prospective applicants, faculty members, and current and former students. Most of the correspondence dates between 1890 and 1912 and addresses requests for matriculation and fellowships, while other areas of consideration include departmental issues, personnel issues, and lists of fellowship and degree recipients. Correspondence with University administrators concerns faculty appointments, enrollment and registration concerns, and class scheduling. Outgoing correspondence of the Dean and Secretary addresses fellowship and scholarship options in attempts to fund specific students, as well as attempts to secure teaching positions for graduating students.
